I saw this movie at our local theater last night.  I went prepared to totally hate it but came away floored by the visuals.  Can't imagine the total rendering time on this thing.  I'm not going to search for it but if anyone happens to know a good site for 'the making of' I would be interested in seeing it.  Happy Rendering in 2007!

Here is some info from XSI Base on Happy Feet, I have not seen it myself but the trailers are pure eye candy.

Glen-  Thanks for that info.  I saw a trailer somwhere and based on that wasn't planning to see the film.  The film has a lot more of interest to the folks using TG2 than the trailer shows.

I worked on it, doing lighting and compositing (Maya and Renderman). My best shot, I think, was the one where you see Mumble as an adolescent for the first time (a pan shot from his feet to his face), with his parents in the background. It was fun, but it was a big task for a company doing it's first animated feature.

So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

Will: Yeah, that was the scene :)
