The film's theatrical release is to be coincided with the opening of Beijing Olympic Game in 2008.

As the main design and workflow platform, Comixware® is being used in all phases of Blaze project.

In current production phase, Comixware is being used for dailies review and retake orders by directors and crew members spread around the globe. Later in the movie distribution phase, Comixware will be used as a viral marketing tool to generate audience awareness for the movie’s theatrical release and merchandising campaign.

“The best thing about Comixware is its playfulness and seamlessness.” said San Wei Chan, the director and co-producer of BLAZE movie. “It allows you to start off a project casually from practically anywhere (a few doodles). But along the way it gives you infinite options to evolve and refine.” “There’s no rigid production framework to abide. You just move along spontaneously breathing with the process, during which feedbacks and improvements are surely to blend in. Then all of a sudden, it’s there! Your doodle turns into a masterpiece. It’s seamless! People love this process because it’s casual but uninhibited.” “I think the ease of use is the key. It doesn’t take a “license” or “certificate” (like other systems) to get proficient with Comixware. So everyone can join in and contribute. That’s I call creativity all inclusive!”

In addition to BLAZE project, Santoon Studio also uses Comixware as a remote proofing tool for its overseas clients in the area of animation program development and production.
