Risks and challenges

Producing an ambitious project like "The Golden Apple" in a cloud-based environment is a huge challenge, which involves a lot of people, hard work and coordination. However, our entire team is composed of top animation professionals with a lot of experience from similar productions.

The extensive pre-production which "The Golden Apple" has gone trough in the past 3 years has also helped us establish a working pipeline and a coordination system for our entire team, which we are constantly improving.

The past several months, in which we produced the trailer, we managed to test these systems on a smaller scale and are ready to handle the challenges of a bigger production. We have researched the subject, established our core team, developed our visual style, story and all character designs, and the only thing we are missing is just the financing to start work.
