"Gingerbreed- The Live Action Motion Picture" is a feature-length independent animated movie directed by Jonathan Dorfman and Szymon Weglarski, and is being produced by the Production Artist Workshop in Eyebeam's Moving Image Division. A Sci-Fi Thriller, based mainly on improvised comedy, the film is set in a "Retro-Tech" future, and follows an international team of Astronauts and Cosmonauts on an exciting voyage from Russia to Mars.

The project makes use of experimental editing techniques and the latest in CGI special effects, combining live actors with animation to achieve a unique mixed-media aesthetic. Coupling blue screen technology with Improvisational comedy allows the actors the unique opportunity to interact with virtual sets and characters of their own creation. In other words, anything that the actors think of "on the spot" can be animated and added into the scene at a later date. The results are unconventional, and hilarious. The film is currently in post-production and is seeking finishing funds and distribution.
