Do you remember any of the films ‘Matrix Reloaded’ or ‘Lord of the rings:Fellowship of the ring’ or ’300′ or ‘Harry Potter: Goblet of fire’ or ‘Planet of the Apes’? Why won’t you remember the bullet stopping scene from matrix reloaded or the slaughtering/blood-flooding scenes of 300 or the dragon fight by Harry potter or the water horses in lord of the rings?
Do you agree when I say, even if we don’t remmeber/understand the story of these movies, we all remember those movies due to one common factor of all these movies that is “The Jaw-dropping AWE factor” of the graphics and special effects? Will you believe that the creator of this AWE factor for the above stated movies along with movies like Hero, House of flying daggers, Stealth, Knowing, Happy feet is not even American? The creator of these unforgettable imprints is an Australian animation company based in Sydney.
Going into the history of the company, the company has assisted with design, animation and visual effects for films, and making of a lot of commercials. At first they started making commercials and in 1995, they started their film involvement with ‘Babe’. Their first full featured animation is the singing and dancing penguins’ “Happy feet”. Their next full animation is ferocious and beautiful owls’ filled “Legend of the Guardians: the owls of Ga’hoole”.
List of all the movies Animal Logic has worked on can be found here.
Fun facts: Film ‘Australia’ also features special effects from this Australian company.; After watching trailers, I feel the baby penguins in “Happy feet” and owls in “Legend of the guardians” have some family resemblance, since their faces look a lot alike.
