An inside scoop on IBM’s role in the animated feature film, Foodfight!

ibm-logo.jpgIBM teamed up with a company that is producing an animated movie called “Foodfight!”.
A working synopsis of the animated film is as follows:

When the lights are turned off and the doors are locked, chaos reigns supreme for the products in this grocery store.

The production company is using IBM hardware for the animation and rendering, and as a result, have named the computer in the movie “Blue”.
The voice is going to be picked from IBM US, we’re told, and IBM employees in the United States are trying out online.
A Canadian IBM employee, who is also a good friend of ours, is going to take a run at the role, even though he is from Canada. As this is an internal casting call, only IBM employees have access to the audition link.
If you work for IBM US, check out the opportunity internally. You might just have the perfect voice for the job!
Foodfight!, directed by Lawrence Kasanoff, is currently in production and slated for release in spring 2007.
