Check out the trailer here:

Tono Errando said during the conferences in Annecy 2011 that (I'm quoting to memory here - but it to this very effect) "I am TIRED of winning prizes, I WANT SALES".

I guess this is one of the prizes he wouldn't mind winning :-)

Congratulations to Estudio Mariscal and the whole team.

And as usual technical and interesting :-D details about the production on:

And on a personal note - That makes two Award nominations in a row for us...
