    Chicago Blues was achieved with a combination of new technologies and classical techniques. The animation was performed with “traditional” computer animation and utilized old-fashioned cel character animation in the design stage. No motion-capture was used. The environment is a miniature set that was photographed, then composited with CG elements.
