A Look at the Evolution of Rotoscope Animated Series Undone

-

Amazon Prime Video has provided us with a behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of Undone, the streaming service’s first rotoscope animated series for adults starring Rosa Salazar. The featurette highlights the actors and artists who brought the series to life through their collaborative work in Los Angeles, Austin and Amsterdam.

The series premieres on Friday, September 13 on Amazon Prime Video and can be streamed in over 200 countries and territories. You can still watch the official trailer by clicking here.

From acclaimed creators Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg (Bojack Horseman) comes Undone, a groundbreaking and genre bending animated series about a young woman’s complex journey to unlock her past and solve the mystery of her father’s death.

Alma Winograd-Diaz (Rosa Salazar, Alita: Battle Angel) takes her mundane life one day at a time until a near fatal accident induces visions of her late-father, Jacob. Through these persistent visions he urges her to tap into a mysterious ability that allows her to travel through space and time with the hopes of preventing his untimely death. This quest challenges Alma’s relationships and brings into question her mental wellbeing with those closest to her.

Undone is brought to life using rotoscope animation, a process that has never before been used in episodic television. The unique look of the animation, under the direction of Hisko Hulsing (Montage of Heck), utilizes a variety of mediums, including oil painting on canvas to render the backgrounds. Amsterdam-based animation studio Submarine has assembled an incredible team of artists and painters from all over Europe to bring the animation elements to life, with rotoscope by the veteran team behind A Scanner Darkly at Austin-based Minnow Mountain (Tower) led by co-producer Craig Staggs.

Undone also stars Bob Odenkirk, Angelique Cabral, Constance Marie, Siddarth Dhananjay and Daveed Diggs. John Corbett, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Sheila Vand and Tyler Posey are among the guest stars.

Purdy and Bob-Waksberg serve as executive producers, along with Noel Bright (BoJack Horseman), Steven A. Cohen (BoJack Horseman) and Tommy Pallotta (A Scanner Darkly). Dutch artist and filmmaker Hisko Hulsing served as the series director and production designer. Undone is produced by Amazon Studios and Tornante Productions.
