A new behind-the scenes featurette offers a glimpse into the evolution of Undone, Amazon Prime Video’s first animated series for adults starring Rosa Salazar, Angelique Cabral, Constance Marie, Siddarth Dhananjay, Daveed Diggs and Bob Odenkirk. The series premieres Friday, September 13th on Amazon Prime Video and can be streamed in over 200 countries and territories. The featurette highlights the actors and artists who brought the series to life through their collaborative work in Los Angeles, Austin, and Amsterdam.
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. Be sure to take a look and listen to our own Perri Nemiroff‘s chat with the creative team here.
Undone also stars John Corbett, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Nicholas Gonzalez, Sheila Vand and Tyler Posey as guest stars. Check out the behind-the-scenes look below:
