Orphanage gets ‘Kids’ gig

Co. recently worked on 'Full Throttle,' 'Seabiscuit,' 'Hero'

The Orphanage has been tapped to create more than 80 f/x shots for Dimension Films’ upcoming sequel “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over.”

Pic, directed by writer-producer Robert Rodriguez, is being prepped for a July 25 release.

Hybride Technologies serves as lead f/x facility on “Spy Kids 3-D.” TroubleMaker Digital is also tackling the pic’s extensive f/x demands, along with the Orphanage.

The Orphanage, the small San Francisco-based f/x facility founded by former Industrial Light & Magic staffers Jonathan Rothbart, Stuart Maschwitz and Scott Stewart, has been on a roll recently.

Company recently created f/x sequences for Columbia actioner “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” and U’s “Seabiscuit.” It also created the effects for HBO’s “Iron Jawed Angels” and Miramax’s “Hero.” It was also the sole f/x and animation house for United Artists’ upcoming “Jeepers Creepers 2.”

The Orphanage’s primary work for “Spy Kids 3-D” includes CG character modeling and animation, the creation of digital environments and advanced compositing.

Because the pic will be 3-D, all of the work must be created twice but from slightly different angles, essentially doubling the shots needed.

Maschwitz will oversee the Orphanage’s work on “Spy Kids 3-D” as visual effects supervisor, with Marc Sadeghi serving as executive producer in charge of feature post-production for the company.
