The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

  • Director: David Slade
  • Studio: Summit Entertainment
  • VFX Studio: Image Engine

As situations intensified in the third Twilight film, Animatrik were called upon to capture not humans, but wolves.

The Animatrik team created mo-cap suits especially tailored for wolves and captured their performances as a real-world 3D reference point. Some of this data was dropped straight into the movie, while other elements of it were used as a guide for the animators.

To ensure that the wolves remained happy and content throughout the mo-cap process, the team monitored the amount of hours the animals worked, while adjusting aspects of the Animatrik capture studio, such as keeping the air conditioning just right to ensure the animals remained unstressed.
