Director Rohitash Rao Joins ShadowMachine Crew

Rohitash Rao
ShadowMachine, the company behind the upcoming Hell & Back and Pinocchio, have hired Rohitash Rao to work on a project for the recording artist Beck and Capitol Records at ShadowMachine.

According to Shootline:

"Commercial animation director Rohitash Rao has joined ShadowMachine for exclusive U.S. spot representation. His credits include commercial and music video projects for Crunch, Nike, Snapple, Volkswagen and The Great Big World. Rao has completed his first assignment since coming aboard ShadowMachine: a six-spot animated musical campaign for Arizona community DMB/Verrado via Cecillian Worldwide. He is currently working on a project for recording artist Beck and Capitol Records via ShadowMachine."

Which is pretty cool and interesting.  Though I just hope that we will get some news about a feature from ShadowMachine, it doesn't even have to be Pinocchio!  It's just sad to see a company as amazingly talented as ShadowMachine stopped from doing a feature because of budget problems.  If mainstream production houses like Columbia, 20th Century Fox, Sony, would invest in Stop Motion flicks I know we would get fantastic films!
