Another upcoming project that’s in early development at AJ Epyx Productions is our first animated short. The tentatively titled HAPPY TOGETHER CLINIC follows a couples therapy session between a married couple of social media influencers and their marriage counselor. Originally envisioned as a live-action short, the project was re-conceived to be animated using new software and techniques available to us. The artwork below is only rough concept art for the look and feel of the project. We will have more news about this and more very soon.
