The money raised through crowdfunding will allow our full dedication to the project, ensuring the desired quality and its implementation in less time.
PoustEx is a computer animated short film project created by BaloOm Animation Studios. The story follows PoustEx, a young mail delivery robot on his first day of work, admiring everything he sees with the sense of wonder of a child at an amusement park. When PoustEx discovers a house without a mailbox, he decides to deliver the letter personally and realizes that not all mail is good mail. After seeing the sad reaction of the mail recipient, PoustEx is determined to make things better, but some things are easier said than done. For PoustEx, many challenges lie ahead. The film will have approximate run time of 12 minutes and is appropriate for all ages.
The idea of PoustEx came about in early 2011. Since then we have worked on story, script, character design, concept drawings, storyboard, modeling, texturing, animation, etc.
While we have completed a number of tasks, there is still much to do in order to tell a story in a compelling way, innovative and with all the necessary elements to make it a great story.
Our goal is to produce a complex 3D animation, visually enchanting, with several scenes, incredible characters, amazing effects and especially with a good story to tell.
The launching of PoustEx is scheduled for the end of 2015, at which time we will submit it to a number of animation and film festivals around the world. Also, will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and for download from the iTunes Store.
