Awarded to those amateur filmmakers, small teams and studios that deliver stunning VFX and CG for TV, episodic content or web shorts.

Pulldownit is a dynamics solver which enables the creation of fractures as well as massive rigid bodies simulations. By using its technology digital artists are able to simulate fast and stable destruction VFX. Pulldownit is available for 3ds Max and Maya: It catches the geometry from the viewports and computes the final result as animation keys. You can reset the simulation and start again as many times as needed while tweaking parameters, and you can resume the simulation at any frame. Also animated objects and characters are able to interact with the simulated ones. The Thinkinetic brand was created to offer digital tools and simulation services to the motion graphics industry.
