Shanghai grabs Tigar Hare for animation

Cyberbiz Briefs

Boutique f/x shop Tigar Hare Studios has pacted with Shanghai Digital Studios in China to create high-quality computer-generated animation at a reduced cost for U.S. productions. Founded in 1999 by Michael Tigar and David Hare, Tigar Hare recently completed f/x shots for racing car actioner “Driven” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.” It is finishing up 20 minutes of computer generated scenes for the upcoming “Spider-Man” vidgame from Activision, as well as sequences for an undisclosed vidgame for Savage Entertainment. It also recently completed a 20-second CG-animated in-theater trailer for Fandango.com.

Tigar Hare recently moved into a 5,000-square-foot digital facility in Sherman Oaks with 20 workstations. Shanghai pact now gives it an additional 100 workstations and a real-time optical motion capture system, as well as a Flash division in Malaysia.

Formerly a digital f/x supervisor at Sony Pictures Imageworks and Rhythm and Hues Studios, Tigar has worked on f/x for “Babe,” “James and the Giant Peach,” “Batman Returns,” “Contact” and “Anaconda.” Hare, former owner of Wild Hare Graphic Arts, also served as a CG supervisor at KeyLight Studios and as creative director and lead animator for An-Amaze-tion Studios.
