Pixeldust Studios, a multi-award winning digital animation and broadcast design studio located in Bethesda, Md., has launched a non-entertainment division that is to provide services to government, corporate, museum, educational and charitable groups and organizations.
Ricardo Andrade, Pixeldust Studios president and creative director, said, the company has “been fortunate enough during the past few years” to have expanded its creative services to numerous clients who fall into “non-entertainment” categories. “While we clearly have made a name for ourselves within the non-fiction television and documentary arenas, we felt now was the appropriate time to officially launch this new company unit, which will provide our same award winning animation and motion graphics work to a much broader universe of companies, organizations and projects, on a global scale,” he said.
Among the projects Pixeldust’s non-entertainment division has produced for the government includes a four minute and 30 second, animated film for the Department of Defense entitled “Basic Allowance for Housing” [that allowance is the monthly amount service members receive to find quarters off base]. Utilizing a live actress shot in motion capture, Pixeldust created a 3D cell animated female character named “Charlotte,” an allowance specialist who informs military members how to live off base comfortably and comparably to their civilian counterparts.
Pixeldust is also currently producing an instructional series for the U.S. Congress, which is to inform members and staff about the importance of computer security.
