LUXX Studios has spent years toiling away on other people’s productions. They poured their hard work into making the FXs of Independence Day Resurgence, as well as The Grand Budapest Hotel and White House Down.

Through that hard work they’ve created a name for themselves in the movie business. And now they’re in a position to deliver their first feature: Manou.

LUXX Studios’ rise mirrors that of similar companies.

Most production houses don’t begin life working on their own movies. Before they work on their own productions, they’re creating FX or doing other jobs for larger publishers.

One such company is Sky Blue Studios.

You know Conneticut’s Sky Blue Studios from their work making the Ice Age movies. And you probably fell in love with them the moment you saw those little vignettes with Scrat, the squirrel, trying to protect his nuts.

But begore Sky Blue Studios was making major blockbuster motion pictures, they were an indie FX studio house. Sky Blue Studios worked on countless movies, including, Fight Club, Stark Trek Insurrection, and Titan A.E.

Just two years into their run as an FX house, Sky Blue Studios started working on their own productions. The first was Bunny, the tale of an elderly widowed rabbit grieving her husband’s death is encountered by a moth who invites her into the afterlife.

LUXX are hoping to follow Blue Sky Studios’ success. And they’re already create stellar visuals for the likes of Independence Day Resurgence. Now they’re working on their own feature, Manou The Swift.

The little swift Manou grows up believing he’s a seagull. Learning to fly he finds out he never will be. Shocked, he runs away from home. He meets birds of his own species and finds out who he really is. When both seagulls and swifts face a dangerous threat, Manou becomes the hero of the day.

Manou The Swift looks absolutely beautiful. The bright colours burst from the screen, and just a few seconds into watching the trailer we’re already wrapped in Manou’s adventures.

This looks like the movie seagull-lovers have been waiting for. So, if like me, you’re a fan of those birds that constantly steal your fish n chips while you’re sitting by the sea, you should probably watch the trailer for Manou The Swift, below.
