Directors' statement
ZOOks is the story of man’s challenging relationship with nature, translated into a metaphorical conflict of two royal brothers, King Alexander and Prince Ferdinand. ZOOks intends to enrich its family audience with knowledge of and love for nature, engaging it to discover nature. We developed a unique workflow for the animation of the film, combining 2D rotoscopy with 3D sets.
