Dream Quest to create ‘Gadget’ f/x

House to animate Broderick

Dream Quest Images, which has produced f/x work on “Armageddon,” “Con Air” and “Flubber,” will do the special effects for Walt Disney Pictures’ “The Real Inspector Gadget.”

Dream Quest is responsible for visually creating the mechanical deployment of all of Gadget’s gizmos. Like a human Swiss army knife, Gadget, played by Matthew Broderick, has extending legs, arms and neck, as well as shoes with additional useful functions and a hat that deploys a helicopter propeller.

Using computer-generated images, Dream Quest is creating an inorganic, machine look to Gadget’s superhuman extensions, which will be matched with physical models created by Stan Winston Studios. According to Dream Quest, this will entail some tricky compositing.

As the film’s visual-effects supervisor, Richard Hoover (“Armageddon”) will oversee the f/x work both on location and at Dream Quest. “Gadget” began production in July and shoots in Los Angeles and Pittsburg. The pic is skedded for release July 16.
