"The Ten Commandments" CG feature

Looks like the publicity machine is starting to ramp on the CG film we finished earlier this year :

Should be in theatres later this year. Hopefully we'll have a trailer to show before too long!

Looks outstanding! Can't wait.

Can you tell us a little about the apps/software you guys used to animate it?

Thanks! Darn You Tube compression.

Rendered and animated all in maya (with Maya Software renderer - ai carumba!), comp'd with After Effects, Premiere Pro for animatic/editing. Made in 15 months, with a crazy small budget and team, as these things go - the crew all did an amazing job. It darn near killed some of us!

We're well underway now with the next in the series of Epic Tales with "The Flood" - should be a lot of fun, we've got a great script, a lot more creative freedom as the biblical account is more of an outline compared to the well known/defined Moses' story. Plus no one has really done it before, unlike Ten Commandments which came with a weighty heritage courtesy of DeMille and Dreamworks

I knew it - Elliot Gould is God! Now we got a name AND a face!

I always thought that the flood would make a good cg animation! All the best wishes with this well done.

I was waiting a long time for a remake of "10 commandments".

I'm somewhat disappointed its a "all CG" film.

I was expecting/hoping for it to be of epic proportions as the original.
The CG combined with real actors & true storyline would have been behemoth as a visual.

Any idea on the budget?

"Elliot Gould is God"

Elliot was great, just the right combination of strength and intimacy we wanted.

"Any idea on the budget"

I can't disclose the budget, but think of a small number, then halve it.

im sorry but does anyone think this movie looks slightly outdated?

i mean the characters look like they were taken from the first ice age movie, and overall the "sizzle reel" has a very "direct to dvd" look to it. there has already been one animated moses movie, and it doesn't look like this one is gonna be able to stand up to comparison.

I personally never seen an animated feature and thought:

"Yes, it has a very interesting story, or is very funny, but that lack of SSS on characters makes it suck."

I did however think after seeing many animated features:

"Yes this state of art animation and/or rendering but this movie is anything but interesting"

That said, this movie may lack both, or have both - visuals and content, I still wont go to cinema to see it (I'm not really into biblical movies).
