Digital Domain

Here's a behind the scenes look at the work from Digital Domain for Beauty and the Beast. Digital Domain's website says, "VFX Supervisor Kelly Port and his team of about 250 artists worked for many many months to turn Dan Stevens into an amazing live-action/CGI Beast to accompany Emma Watson’s Belle."

Framestore VFX work

Framestore also worked on Beauty and the Beast. They worked on characters like Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and Lumiere.

If you're at SIGGRAPH, you can learn about Framestore's work on Beauty and the Beast. "Learn about Framestore’s character creation on Beauty and the Beast and how the team used new techniques to bring household objects Lumiere, Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts to life convincingly with photo-real look development using Maya, Shotgun, and Arnold."
