The Great Race was our opportunity to have total creative control over an animated film. We used this chance to improve our animation skills. To animate an animal race was a great challenge for us and launched us into a field that required fresh research. To achieve this film we had to improve our animal drawing skills, many visits to the zoo were made. Learning about animals with a mind to animate them was one of the most enjoyable aspects of the film making process.

Taking inspiration from the Native American Cheyenne and Sioux tale, we sought to stay faithfully to the original story. The deeper meaning of the film asks the question; should man have won the race? And what would the world be like if buffalo had reign over the world?
