    Furtility: dynamic grooming for Wolfman



    For Wolfman, MPC was presented with the challenge of fulfilling the director’s creative vision of gradual and graphic werewolf transformations, requiring significant enhancements to Furtility, the company’s hair/fur system. Originally developed for 10,000 BC to create photorealistic mammoths and heavily used since on everything from seaweed to digital double actors, Furtility was extended to handle growing and transforming hair in almost 50 shots for Wolfman, many of which were extreme close-ups.
