For the “Fringe” episode “Lysergic Acid Diethylamide,” Zoic Studios created 240 heavily stylized animated shots, a blend of hand drawn and 3D techniques, in just under six weeks. Inspired by graphic novels, Max Fleischer and Hanna-Barbera classics, Zoic began the process with character designs for each of the actors in the animated sequence. They drew storyboards for every scene and cut them together with footage from stunt-coordinator material, fight-scene choreography and live-action performances.
