Cats: An Amazing Animal Family

Visual Effects and Compositing

We were commissioned by Bristol based Offspring Films to develop a signature series look to visualise the Big Cats family tree for SKY ONE. Using specialist software, we created a 4K photo-real asset that accurately represented the Big Cats family tree that could grow, animate and adapt to the editorial needs.

Footage of cats was carefully chosen and composted into the tree to create a seamless visual narrative. Each episode tells the story of how each of these cat dynasties came to be.  The tree plays an integral part in the series as its branches grow, representing the feline lineages that evolved over time.
