LOONEY TUNES “Fur of Flying”

WARNER BROS. ANIMATION

Feature Short

 

Warner Bros. gave us the illustrious job of bringing their classic 2D cartoons into the world of theatrical stereoscopic CG animation. The second of three shorts starring Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, Fur of Flying revisits Chuck Jones’ nostalgic cartoons in a new era of animation and technology. We were tapped by Warner Bros. Animation to reinvent the cartoon’s legacy while still maintaining its authenticity. The short had to capture the spirit of the originals with the subtleties of humor, timing, and heart loved by Looney Tunes fans across the globe. To achieve this, we created innovative rigging and animation techniques and custom tools that would give the shorts a 2D feel, despite being created in a 3D stereoscopic pipeline.
