Being the massive Harry Potter fans that we are, we were thrilled to be part of the team charged with extending the franchise into the world of magical and mystical beasts. The Newt's Case sequence was a particularly fun challenge as it was initially intended to be a ten minute continuous camera move following Newt as he tends to all of his creatures. For the Obscuras we dug deep to come up with a rig that looked like evil come to life, but was still agile and nimble enough for us to animate quickly. Our team did a remarkable job capturing the mood, spirit, and energy of the film.
