Cinesite's first ever animated short — it's a comic skit about an ill-fated lunar mission — is a viral hit, pushing 2 million YouTube views as it showcases the VFX company's creature-animation skills. The writer-director (and one of the animators) was Alvise Avati; Cinesite Animation Director Eamonn Butler produced.
