Our Look

Grasshorse has continued developing techniques to blend multiple styles; in blending 2D and 3D animation, Grasshorse often uses orthographic cameras to eliminate 3D perspective, making the animation appear flatter. The effect is further emphasized through limiting the angles in which 3D models can be displayed to reinforce a 2D-like aesthetic.

Grasshorse was a recipient of the demonstration fund award from the State of Iowa in 2008 for developing our proprietary technology, ProtoMotion, an advanced stop motion technology that combines digitally created and photographed assets into a mixed media animation aesthetic.
