Saw this at Telluride FF.

It works beautifully. Cannot believe it was made by such a small handful of people. Let's face it - CGI creds usually go on longer than the film. It was refreshing to hear kiwi accents in a slick looking high quality context. Plenty of detail. The story is tight. The whole context of motion capture usage in adult stories is an interesting area - Beowulf and all that. Will be interesting to see where the technology goes over the next few years. I suppose there's the temptation with CGI and Motion Capture to turn things into unnecessary confections, but also the opportunity to show things that would be impossible to shoot. POPPY seems to tell a carefully thought out emotive story and the hi tech side is kept on a tight leash.
