  • Dream Quest Images


    For Walt Disney Pictures’ “George of the Jungle,” Dream Quest Images produced extensive character animation to bring to life the computer-generated version of Shep, George’s pet elephant who doggedly believes himself to be a dog. Dream Quest also enhanced live footage of a real-life elephant with expressive dog-like eyes, drooling tongue, and wagging tail, and matched that manipulated footage seamlessly with their impossibly canine CG Shep.
