Santa Monica, CA — IMPD Productions announced the creation of CounterPunch Studios to enhance the company’s robust production pipeline. The expanded production arm will provide groundbreaking facial and body character animation, modeling, rigging, texturing, lighting, live action production, and full editorial services to the entertainment industry.
“There is a real inflection point happening in the use of computer animation and Photo-Real characters in movies and other media. We formed CounterPunch to help our customers more easily and affordably navigate through what can potentially be a very expensive and challenging process,” said IMPD Productions founder Andrew Egiziano. “Our rigging pipeline and proprietary system drive extremely competitive pricing that we believe will change the way producers and filmmakers approach creating Photo-Real characters .”
The highly skilled production team at CounterPunch Studios has worked together for four years and collectively has produced 2D and CG characters for over one hundred projects including full or partial deliverables of full body rigging and animation in all forms of media. The evolved proprietary processes and tool sets developed at CounterPunch allow the firm to offer a highly competitive pricing structure vs. traditional companies with much higher overhead and slower processes.
