The film sees a 100% photo-real Orangutan called Maya experiencing the wonders of energy in all their manifestations; discovering a funfair and encountering a wonderland of light, sound and movement.
The animation team went to extraordinary lengths to create an ape that looked 100% photo-real; re-crafting her entirely in CG, developing her muscle movements by hand before seamlessly comping the orangutan onto live action plates of a busy pier and funfair.
Such detailed animation was key to bringing Maya’s full character and personality to life as she engaged with the world around her.
