The animated feature JOYFLUID opens in a limited number of IMAX 3D theaters in Mexico this Friday. The Mexico City-produced motion capture animated film was directed by Alejandro Rodriguez Huerta and made by the Rodriguez Brothers Animation Group.
The look of the film reflects its small budget, which was under $2 million. In its defense, that’s only one-tenth the budget of the Indian mo-cap film Kochadaiiyaan, which looks only marginally better. No indication is given in the trailer, but JOYFLUID apparently has a socially aware message that deals with child development issues and disorders like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
