At first glance, Lumicel„¢ appears to be a beautifully drawn composite animation model sheet and sericel. It features favorite characters in a variety of expressive and dynamic poses, while further showcasing these characters in a central serigraphic or hand-painted color image. But then, with the wave of a hand, Lumicels comes to life with lighting, music and sound effects. Lumicel's exclusive IOn feature makes all of the technology invisible. There are no buttons, speakers, or switches to distract from the beauty of the artwork. Once the IOn is activated, a section of the model sheet is illuminated and an accompanying sound bite is played. The commentary varies from narration by animation pioneers such as Walt Disney or Mel Blanc, to quintessential character lines, soundtracks, or a film score.
