This is one of a series of three Baymax Dreams shorts produced using a realtime-production pipeline. We used a game engine, Unity, as the core content-creation hub. This innovative approach enabled us to “find the story” in 3D worldspace, and contributed greatly to our ability to hone the comedic timing in the interplay between Baymax and his clones.


Our story begins as Baymax goes into sleep mode, and is transported to a “dream” version of San Fransokyo.
