The studio had to create a pipeline for the short because it no longer had one for 2D animation, says Hermann. Despite the handmade look, the film is produced digitally, with the backgrounds painted on paper and then scanned into Adobe Photoshop. TVPaint was used for the animation, and Adobe After Effects for the rest. “Every time there was something that looked CG, we tried to a make it look more handmade,” Salazar says.

This looks so amazing! Wish to see more big studios continuing with hand drawn stuff like this. I love this!

I'm confused as to what TVP was used for in the production.

Can someone clarify?

Thank you for sharing this info! :D

It means that no paper animation has been made. It is a mix of scanned paper painted background, digital hand drawn animation in TVPaint and then compositing (and I guess camera movements) in After Effects.
