Animal Encounters

Studying real world examples from the animal kingdom is critical when creating our photorealistic CG characters. Recently our Launchpad Pro animation trainees took a trip to a local zoo to examine the behaviour of a range of species. In house, we were visited by some friendly ferrets where employees studied their movements as a reference for characters featured in season one of His Dark Materials. Our motion capture team also captured hours of footage of real bears for the team working on Disney's Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made.
