Nitrogen studios partnered with Sony Pictures Entertainment, Annapurna Pictures (“Zero Dark Thirty”, “American Hustle”, “Her”) and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures on this amazing movie project directed by Nitrogen’s Greg Tiernan and veteran Dreamworks director Conrad Vernon (“Shrek 2, “Monsters Vs Aliens”, “Madagascar 3″).
“Sausage Party” is an ‘R’ rated theatrical animated movie about one sausage’s quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the 4th of July sale.
Sony’s President of Production, Hannah Minghella said “We’re thrilled to be back in business with Seth and Evan. This project has all the irreverent, insightful and risque R-rated humor we have come to expect from them. Matching their unique comic sensibility with an animated film is a fun and inspired idea. We are confident that Seth, Evan, Conrad and Greg will deliver one of the most memorable animated movies of all time.”
What I learned:
professionally this was a chance to expand my knowledge of Maya's nCloth, my understanding of cloth dynamics and setup has increased exponentially. Exposure to unfamiliar workflows helped enhance my problem solving skills as well as my attention to detail. A good analogy would be, that before working at nitrogen I was a cook, where as now I feel more like a chef.
I worked with shotgun for the first time and learned how to write a ticket in a way that makes my needs and problems understood.
During my time at Nitrogen I had the pleasure to work with many different professionals, which helped me grow as a professional and as an artist. I learned how to communicate and work with people from all ends of the earth in a way that helps create a better work environment. I also had the pleasure to make many friends and be exposed to the Canadian way of life.
