The second installment of the landmark “Battle 360” series, “Patton 360” premieres on History Friday April 10 at 9pm Eastern.

Crazybridge is producing all of the graphics for this 10-episode series, including the full-scale CGI battle reenactments, maps, and 3D diagrams.  We follow Patton’s march through WWII  from the deserts of North Africa, through the hedgerows of France, by land, by sea, by day, night, in sun, rain, snow, and fog.

The largest and most ambitious project Crazybridge has taken on to date, and nearly a year in the making, this show also marks the Studio’s first major foray into character animation.  Unlike the USS Enterprise series last year, most of Patton 360’s battles occur on a more human scale, featuring elaborate environments and intricate animation of soldiers and tanks, Jeeps, and half-tracks in action.
