"How long did the production take?"
Few months, I don't know, I always have couple started but unfinished project on the table, uncertain in the way I want movie to go, waiting to learn some new process to be able to finish a movie.
For example, for this one I made first minute (fairy approaching and lifting the Doll) two years ago, but I wasn't sure how to deal with Doll's transformation so I just left it knowing that some good idea (in this case, surrealistic videos that will change Doll's colours) will came up.
Another example, I have a good beginning of my new movie about two knights fighting and revealing, literary, their insides of their heads, thoughts of each other - but I am not sure how to visualise their inner worlds so I will wait iClone 5 to see how good cel shading will look. If it will be usable, I will made movie semi tooned, hybrid of fighting scenes in MotionBuilder and insides of their heads in iClone. (or, of course, if new iClone will be very, very good, I could remade all scenes in iClone)
Here is that beginning, you will see what I am talking about: http://vimeo.com/20278808
