Cloth Cat animation ( http://www.clothcatanimation.com ) are doing the ink and paint, compositing, and the 3D work on Ethel and Ernest. The first colour scenes are coming through to us now in London. All three studios Lupus films, Studio 352 in Luxembourg and Cloth Cat in Wales are linked together by some production software called Hobsoft ( http://hobsoft.net ). In this way all three studios can view work simultaneously.

Some snaps from the ink and paint and compositing departments at Cloth Cat. (click on images to enlarge)
