Framestore: “Please look after this bear.”

See how Framestore used MARI and NUKE (and find out which movie star inspired Paddington’s expressive brown eyes).

Say VFX, and most people think summer blockbusters, explosions and epic scenes from space. But this past December, Framestore put its massive talents to use to bring Paddington, one of the world’s most beloved bears, to life. Using MARI and NUKE, Framestore created a lead character who melted the hearts of audiences worldwide, against a backdrop that captures the unique spirit of London.  

It [MARI] changes way we texture. It allows for more complex and detailed texturing. It’s being able to work in 2D and 3D - that can’t be underestimated.
