The SE3D ("seed") showcase ran from October 2004 to September 2005.  A Watershed project sponsored by HP and Alias, it brought together over 30 media organisations, aspiring animators and industry veterans to create 11 films produced using cutting-edge technology.

During the course of the programme, 500,000 CPU hours were used to render 500,000 frames of animation.  Since SE3D finished, all the films have been doing the film festival circuit, picking up some awards along the way.

On this micro-site you can find an overview of the showcase, some background on the technology developed for SE3D, historical news, related whitepapers and press coverage.

You may also want to look at some of the press articles published about the project.
