Minuscule, a Giant 3D Success Story

 Wherever it is featured, Minuscule-Valley of the Lost Ants attracts a lot of attention. In a few days, the silent 3D stereoscopic movie got more than 150 000 admissions to date in Poland and more than 400.000 in France (while "12 Years a slave" did only 300.000 over the same launch period).

Number one at the french box-office ( all categories ) during the release week, welcomed by rave reviews from the press, this rather unusual animated movie seems on it's way to become a serious hit. The movie backgrounds were shot in native stereoscopic 3D at the heart of the Mercantour National Park in France; CGI characters were hand animated and composited in post.
