Tendril has recently produced a 3D character animation commercial for Petro Canada. The connection to Sweden is that Tendril hired Olov Burman of Göteborg, to make the Storyboard and Animatic. Olov brought Chistina Sidoto in as a Freelance Character Animator to help him animate the characters and cameras. Christina is resident of Sweden for a year and a half, but originates from the NYC area.
World of More was initially developed as a print campaign for Petro Canada by Tendril. The characters were plucked from 2D and brought into the spellbinding world of 3D character animation.
