​While working at MPC I was lucky enough to work on Dolittle (2020) and the Cats (2020). For Cats I was working on the muscle system for Cassandra and Gus.


For Dolittle I was working on the Giraffe and was working on the muscle system and corrective pose shapes. The Giraffe was an interesting mechanical study to check the range of movement that can be done along with the movement that would be done in the film as there are some great scenes that require the giraffe to really go some extremes.


I really can't wait to see Dolittle and the amazing work that the teams at MPC did on the animals!​ Of course, I am biased, but the rigs look brilliant and the groom/rendering were a joy to watch. The Gorilla and the dogs were absolutely stunning!
