    “Raymond” is the story of a lowly swimming instructor from Douche Les Mines and his quest, with the help of some fantasy science, to achieve his dream to swim with the whales. The film was created as a combination of live action and 3D animation.

    The main area created in 3D was Raymond’s laboratory re-programming, and it is here where BIF were able to display their unique style of character animation. Raymond is put through his paces. He’s a table top footballer. He runs like no man before him. And he dances like a Jackson. The BIF team also created an extraordinary look for the film: a combination of very cool styliza-tion and photorealism, giving the final film a very sophisticated look.
