Peter Rabbit: Behind the Scenes

Peter Rabbit is Live Action/Animated Film Animal Logic &  Sony Pictures Animation & Rising Sun Pictures crafted Multiple CG Characters with intensive visual effects.

Rising Sun Pictures was an integral part of the film’s visual effects and animation team, contributing more than 150 shots to the kid-friendly fun. The work of studio’s character animators is especially noteworthy as they were charged with bringing key members of the film’s supporting cast to life: a rooster who shocks the barnyard with his over-the-top morning crows, and a quartet of singing sparrows.
