Blue Sky Studios, History, Computer Graphic Animation, Dr, Seuss and latest News Developments

Academy Award winning Blue Sky Studios became a wholly owned unit of Fox Filmed Entertainment in 1997 (a subsidiary of News Corporation). The studio was founded ten years earlier with a mission to pioneer creatively superior photo-realistic, high-resolution, computer-generated character animation for the feature film, television and entertainment industries.

Throughout our history, we at Blue Sky Studios have maintained a single-minded focus on creating high quality imagery, while upholding the highest production standards. Not only do we boast some of the industry’s most creative animation talent, its proprietary software, CGI Studio, is considered the best renderer in the business.

CGI Studio is based on the concept of raytracing and simulates the way light behaves on objects and surfaces in a natural environment. The software incorporates an object-oriented graphics programming language rather than a closed menu-driven package. It also builds images through the use of the most advanced geometric models available, giving it a significant advantage over rendering systems built around polygons. Because of CGI Studio’s capabilities, we’re famous for integrating live-action and computer-generated animation, composited during the final rendering stage into seamless first generation images.

Some of our credits include the 1998 Oscar Award winning short film Bunny, which was the first film to use an advanced ambient lighting technology known as radiosity, and set new standards in cinematic storytelling for the computer-animation industry. The film has won more than 25 international awards for animation excellence.

Next came our all-CGI feature, Ice Age. The film, directed by Academy Award-winner Chris Wedge, made a record breaking debut in the domestic marketplace with its release on March 15, 2002. Ice Age continues its extraordinary momentum in the international markets around the world.

The studio has also completed work for Fight Club (1999, Fox 2000), several alien creatures for Star Trek: Insurrection (1998, Paramount), the monsters of Alien Resurrection (1997, 20th Century Fox), numerous characters and special effects for A Simple Wish (1997, Bubble Factory/Universal Pictures), the final ?Genesis? sequence in Titan A.E., and a host of dancing, singing cockroaches for the MTV cult classic Joe’s Apartment (1996, Geffen Films, Warner Bros.). The studio has also animated numerous commercials and created an instant hit with the “talking fish” animation for the 1999 season finale of HBO’s The Sopranos.
