"Year of the Fish"

The Old ManYEAR OF THE FISH is an animated independent feature film written and directed by David Kaplan, shot entirely on location in New York City’s Chinatown. A modern-day adaptation of Cinderella based on an old Chinese version of the story, it was shot on inexpensive live-action video that was used as a guide for digital painting in post-production." It's also an official selection at the Sundance Film Festival.

"Once the shooting and live-action editing were completed, the animation of YEAR OF THE FISH began. Following in the footsteps of Richard Linklater's "Waking Life" and "Scanner Darkly", the production was shot and edited on miniDV and then rotoscoped in post production to create a high-definition animated feature film."

There are no clips of the film, but there are several screen shots and very interesting production notes and details about the animation process. They used Synthetik Studio Artist to acheive the unique look.
