Long Story Short: Production analysis of the Cricket & Antoinette

Production analysis of the Cricket & Antoinette, the first Croatian feature-length 3D CGI film, completed in early 2023. As in any pioneering project, it is a journey into the unknown. From idea to development and elaboration, a series of problems and challenges are encountered along the way, and the realisation sometimes seems impossible. From conceiving to gathering the team and ensuring technical conditions for the production, one goes through an epic adventure, and at the end, we are too surprised that we've managed to finish the film. A presentation of this thirteen-year long journey.
