Toon Boom animates The Simpsons Movie

Watch the trailer:

Emmy Award-winning Toon Boom Animation Inc. encouraged all animation lovers and Simpsons fans to go see The Simpsons Movie and experience the Toon Boom technology at its best. In addition to winning 23 Emmys and 22 Annie Awards, The Simpsons is the most popular primetime animated series and the longest running half-hour sitcom in the history. Its success on the big screen is more than promising.
Produced by 20th Century Fox and animated at Film Roman, a Starz Media company, The Simpsons Movie is done in 2D animation using a combination of Toon Boom Harmony and Opus. To create animation of the highest quality, the team has taken full advantage of Toon Boom‘s powerful network solutions from the design stage to final rendering. The impressive use of special effects applied on characters, the extensive number of characters, the breathtaking backgrounds and the smart combination of 2D and 3D animation makes the whole adventure worth watching.
David Silverman says close to 100 animators worked more than 18 months on the movie, and brand-new animation techniques were devised to show crowd shots of most of the population of Springfield. In the end, there were 100 speaking parts. And all this after it took four years just to come up with a script that everyone could agree on.
