Toon Boom Animates The Simpsons Movie

Montreal - Technology from Emmy Award-winning Toon Boom Animation Inc. was used in the making of The Simpsons Movie, now in theaters.
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 history. Its success on the big screen is also promising.
Produced by 20th Century Fox and animated at Film Roman, a Starz Media company, The Simpsons Movie is proudly done in 2D animation using a combination of Toon Boom Harmony and Opus.
The animation team has taken advantage of Toon Boom's network solutions from the design stage to final rendering. The use of special effects applied on characters, the extensive number of characters, the backgrounds ,and the smart combination of 2D and 3D animation make the adventure worth seeing.
