Vampires Suck
"Vampires Suck" (German title: "Beilight - Biss zum Abendbrot") is a parody of the famous "Twilight" saga. New Regency produced the film with the usual kind of slapstick. The "Wolves" chase every cat they see. Pixel Magic Los Angeles gave us the order to carry out the animation and the integration of a digital cat.

The distance between cat and actor should mostly remain the same. After the acceptance of the timing by the director, we could start the actual animation.

The shadows on the ground were simulated by means of holes in the roof. The floor was textured in such a way that the bouncelight gets the appropriate color.
