Dreamworks [Animation] showed an interest in the quality of our work. I think the film is extremely well crafted and the team made an amazing job.

Julien Meesters, Head of Creative 

We looked around and met with various studios, and Mikros had done ‘Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods,’ and I was intrigued to see how they handled something that’s a cartoony style and converted it to CG. […] And I thought they did a really good job and that this could be an interesting choice. Then they did ‘Mune,’ and we were impressed with how they lit it and understood the material and how it needed to take a leap.
