Lightheads is a YA sci-fi novel set in a future where children are schooled to become intergalactic salesmen for Earth's dying industries. The book trailer was developed in conjunction with the author to pitch the finished manuscript to publishers. Flux&Render handled all stages of production, from the initial concept and storyboarding to the final animation and rendered environments.
