If you're interested in this technology we'd love to hear from you! We're currently custom developing it out for clients on their projects and are open to working with studios in customizing it for their unique non photoreal looks all in 3d. Give us an email at info@lollipopshaders.com to setup a Skype call or studio visit for more info and examples.

Too see this technology used on a short film this year, view our case study with 9to3Animation here for reference artwork, renders, and videos!
