In the 1980's, a 3D CGI animated film from DreamWorks Animation called The Works was almost going to be the first film made in CGI to ever be released, however; it was worked on from 1979 to 1986 by the Computer Graphics Lab at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) at Old Westbury, New York.

Plot[]

It was set in the future where a malfunctioning computer triggered a last World War but it repopulates the entire planet with robots, not long later where it would have focused on a experienced pilot named T-Square and a robot named Ipso Facto and the former would go to Earth to return humanity.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. There were production difficulties defining on the traditional produced ink OR work.
  2. The developers had an absurd lack of interest to continue the progress of the film.

Results[]
