Stellar Moves: The Story of Pluto
The students were responsible for all aspects of the film, excluding sound design and music. They produced the film using a combination of Maya, ZBrush, Mari, Photoshop, Renderman 19 RIS, NukeX, and After Effects.
The animated short shares Pluto's story in a heartfelt and fun way. The animation is stellar and gives popular animation powerhouses a run for their money.
