'Baskin Break' tells the story of a maniacal group of monsters, mermaids, and unicorns engaged in synchronized swimming, sporting, and dancing all around a dedicatory cup of Baskin Robbin's ice cream. 

Working with Director Peter Sluszka, we employed live-action footage of ice cream on set and an outfit of talented 3D animators, 2D animators, and compositors to join the ice cream into this whimsical world of crafted CG characters.
