Directed by Academy Award, BAFTA, and Emmy Award winner Mark Andrews (Brave) and created/produced by Emmy Award winner Víctor Maldonado, Annie-winning Alfredo Torres, and Emmy nominee Tommy Blacha, Super Giant Robot Brothers was quoted by Animation World Network as a “milestone in virtual animation production”.
Through the groundbreaking use of the Unreal Video Game Engine in creating the entirely animated show, it was the first completely animated project to utilize movement-capturing technology in its production:
Super Giant Robot Brothers was scored by Alex Mandel, a long-time peer of Mark Andrews at Pixar who previously also did the music for his live-action short Violet and went on to write two songs for Brave.
Andrews, a drummer who used to jam with guitarist Mandel at Pixar events, suggested the musical style to be synthwave: A combination of heavy metal with ’80s synthpop, adding ’90s production elements for a retro-meets-modern approach that reminded Andrews of the Japanese animated series he watched as a kid (for more information, please see How ‘Airwolf,’ ‘Knight Rider’ And John Carpenter Influenced The Music of ‘Super Giant Robot Brothers’).
