Zou, the Kitsu API is the memory of your animation production

The Kitsu API allows to store and manage the data of your animation/VFX production. Through it you can link all the tools of your pipeline and make sure they are all synchronized.

A dedicated Python client, Gazu <>_, allows users to integrate Zou into the tools.
