Our teams of artists are no strangers to crafting CG bears, but the star of this new Agos film required another level of detail. As well as close-ups there posted the unique challenge of the bear’s varied movements: he walks, stands and runs – and his fur has to be perfect from every angle.
VFX Supervisor Jessie Amadio says: “Harald’s vision was to create a character that is believable but not aggressive, as this bear has to be approachable and interact with the little girl; but we had to be careful not to stray into teddy bear cuteness either.”
