I modeled, textured, lit, and rendered everything with Autodesk Maya and Mental Ray. I Completed all of the animation myself, using Maya. Lauren O'connel did the matte paintings (the sky). Shane Csontos-Popko did the milk effect (3:44). Sean Shinwon Kim did the music scoring. Braedan Herrera did the sound design and sound mixing. I composited everything in Nuke and After Effects.
