< Maison de Castle > is a short animation depicting the everyday life of five girls living in the same apartment.
The visuals use “figumentation,” a novel visual expression where CG is merged with figures.
Figumentation adopts “digital rod puppet” technique developed by Buildup.
Ball-jointed figures are puppeteered with rods on a blue background.
Shot images are then edited to erase the rods.
Facial expressions and back-grounds are further added to create visuals where
figures move around freely as if they are alive.
Director: Junya Okabe / Production: Production Buildup

We produced ten 5-minute episodes altogether. After being broadcast on Kids Station in 2008,
the show was produced in English and Korean for dis-tribution in various countries.
