Commercials director Michael Zucker brought Brandt Animation in to help create a pilot for his film noir puppet movie.
Exterior and interior digital environments were built to match the miniature sets of thirties New York gangland inhabited by rodent puppets. A CG spring device was created for a physical boxing glove on set.
Digital removal of rods and wires used to control the puppets was required for most scenes.
