Three years ago, animator Shane Acker made his feature-length directorial debut with 9 - a big screen treatment of his Oscar-nominated short.

However, what the 9 feature managed to do unequivocally is establish Acker as someone capable of creating mesmerizing CGI imagery – and constructing an alternate/sci-fi world that is unmistakably HIS, rather than the handiwork of producers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov. That’s all context for today’s announcement that Acker is teaming up with the Valve Corporation video game development and digital distribution company on a new computer-animated feature, titled Deep.
