Brain Zoo Studios, this year celebrating its 20th anniversary, has released the first teaser for its animated film Nora. The original CG project is a comedic sci-fi action-adventure set in a “retro future” where the life force of civilization has been taken away and without it, all is lost.
The project is headed by industry veteran Mo Davoudian and Farzad Varahramyan, who are blending experience in film, VR and gaming to create a film that will easily translate to multiple media experiences.
“Nora is the reason Brain Zoo Studios exists today. Working with a small group of very diligent and talented artists, we successfully brought Nora to fruition. We used a variety of technologies to push the creative envelope from traditional rendering to virtual reality and real-time engines. But at its core, the story is about the relationships, personalities and sacrifices that we can all relate to. I’m extremely proud to share Nora with the world!” said Mo Davoudian.
“This film has been on a 22 year journey for Mo and me, since we dreamed up its earliest incarnation back in college. At the heart of the story is an odd couple, their crazy sense of what’s funny, and the unconditional loyalty and friendship that somehow gets them through the craziest adventures,” said Farzad Varahramyan.
