#theDigitalCharacterSpecialists

A little bit of history

Ali & Laurent met each other in the early days of their career, somewhere around 2004 at "Attitude Studio", a famous company in France at the time. Back then, Ali worked as a generalist and Technical Director, whereas Laurent specialized himself in Modeling and Surfacing.

Then, for more than a decade now, they crossed each other on many productions. They had the opportunity to add Rigging, Cfx, Fur, Lighting, Compositing and Supervision to their experience and skills.
Providing them an overarching view and a good understanding of the Production pipeline and workflow.

In the last years they met again in one of the biggest animation studios worldwide : ILLUMINATION, where they had the chance to work or supervise the characters of blockbuster movies, allowing them to reach a very high level of artistry and technique.

It was there, in the Minions house, after reaching the top of one of the "3d mountains" that they wanted to discover new "playgrounds" and to start their own adventure.
They decided to create a company specialized in what they knew the most : the CG characters, and to call it KARLAB (for Character Laboratory).

The journey started in early 2016, and we are happy to say that KARLAB met quickly a lot of success, supervising and creating many characters for the best french companies, and also foreign ones based in London, China or Scotland for example.

 

And there is a lot more coming, so stay tuned...
