The psychedelic 3D short WHOLE (2014)
WHOLE tells the story of a broken hearted girl named Mira left with a hole in her belly, on a metaphoric journey to recover her inner self. We made extensive use of new Cycles features, including subsurface scattering and volumetrics. The film is also stereoscopic, using 3D glasses to create a hypnotic trance sequence!” – William Reynish, Whole Director!

SUBURBIA (2014) – a film with truly impressive 12-minute continuous take
This is not a short that relies just on a clever idea or on one joke or on quirky characters, as so many do. This is real life, told with a maturity of purpose and execution. Don Hany's performance is gripping. Every filmmaking decision is smart, not just the script. The tension builds and builds. At the end the audience feels like it has lived through something.

Focus: Pixar studio
Pixar Animation Studios, or simply Pixar, is an American computer animation film studio based in Emeryville, California. The studio is best known for its CGI-animated feature films created with PhotoRealistic RenderMan, its own implementation of the industry-standard RenderMan image-rendering application programming interface used to generate high-quality images. Pixar began in 1979 as the Graphics Group, part of the computer division of Lucasfilm before its spin-out as a corporation in 1986 with funding by Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs, who became its majority shareholder. The Walt Disney Company bought Pixar in 2006 at a valuation of $7.4 billion, a transaction which made Jobs Disney's largest shareholder.
