It then continued with film footage of various productions in which Toon Boom Animation products were used, such as The Simpsons Movie and Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. This was followed by a tour of the Toon Boom office in Montreal where Ms. Vogelesang was interviewed.
Ms. Vogelesang spoke about Toon Boom’s industry leading professional animation and storyboarding products, how they have effected the way which animation is created digitally.
