After a successful collaboration on the short film Miles, director and screen writer Oliver Daly once again asked Territory Studio and Andrew Gant to create the unique robot vision for A-X-L, his feature film debut about a canine-styled AI unit designed for Attack, Exploration and Logistics.

The team came back together to create the POV that is such a key element of the robotic character and narrative. Using Depthkit, volumetric capture data helped us deliver the assets to create a unique vision system and POV that ties into storybeats and allows the audience to follow AXL’s evolution from machine to man’s best friend. In all, our team delivered around 70 AXL vision shots and three projections.
