Mantecoza’s Trailer

Matte Painting for Marketplace scene

Castle Matte painting Mantecoza


I know you’ve all been patiently waiting and we’ve been very quiet.  Mantecoza is deep in to post production and here’s a sneak peak at some of the matte painting work going in to transforming the market place!

Mantecoza the Movie!

We revealed some fun things and made a big announcement at Phoenix Comic Con this year!

With almost the entire cast and crew on hand we were happy to share some of the visual effects work going on in post production.  Including pop up books and air ships and entire matte paintings of castles sharing the scenes with our actors!

But perhaps the biggest announcement of all was that Mantecoza will now be produced as a feature length movie!

Keep an eye open for continuing updates on our progress!!
