Plus Minus

Plus Minus is the second original project to come out of Gnomon Studios. It’s co-directed by feature film directors Shane Acker and Aristomenis Tsirbas. Shane Acker approached Gnomon Studios in September 2009 with the idea for Plus Minus. Production began soon after with Teftt Smith acting as visual effects supervisor. Aristomenis Tsirbas joined the team in March of 2010 to co-direct and supervise the completion of the project.

Since Gnomon Studios is in the same studio lot as the acclaimed Gnomon School of Visual Effects and The Gnomon Workshop, the studio has been able to invite some of the word’s greatest emerging visual effects and animation talents to participate in the production. The stunning results are a testament to the quality of education offered at the school. Find out more at
