We created dozens of invisible effects for this film, so if we’ve done our job right you’ll never even see our work on screen. From adding a small army of rabbits to a sunset suburban street in Canmore, to swapping in a more aesthetically pleasing skyline to the Chicago rabbit mating dance sequence, we had to employ some deft tracking and compositing tricks to seamlessly blend elements together to help tell the story. We got rid of tracking bands, ear tags, and even people lurking in Missouri swamps to more fully immerse the viewer into the natural world of these most remarkable animals. Plus, we got to composite David Suzuki into Beatrix Potter!
