INSIDE THE MIND OF LEONARDO
In 2013, Township & Company was approached by Director Julian Jones to work on a feature length stereoscopic documentary called INSIDE THE MIND OF LEONARDO. The movie is about the threads of thought and working processes of genius inventor and artist Leonardo Da Vinci .
The story is centered around Leonardo’s personal journals (codex) which hold over 6,000 pages of handwritten notes and drawings. The film stars award winning actor Peter Capaldi as he narrates the translated text and passages directly from Leonardo's journals. Township was asked to help develop and animate the "mindscape" that transports the audience into Leonardo's thoughts and ambitions. After working 8 very full months with a small but tremendously hard working team, we created roughly 30 minutes of stereoscopic animation.
