In the new action-adventure comedy Open Season, the first feature-length CG animated film from Sony Pictures Animation, a happily domesticated grizzly bear (Martin Lawrence) has his perfect world turned upside-down after he meets a scrawny, fast-talking mule deer (Ashton Kutcher). Open Season also features Debra Messing, Gary Sinise, Jon Favreau, and Billy Connolly (as head of a rogue gang of Scottish squirrels).
Open Season is directed by Roger Allers (The Lion King) and Jill Culton (credits include Monsters, Inc., Toy Story 2) and co-directed by Anthony Stacchi (credits include Antz).
The film showcases the Computer Generated (CG) animation created by Sony Pictures Imageworks Inc., an Academy Award®-winning, state-of-the-art visual effects and character animation company, dedicated to the art and artistry of digital production and character creation. Recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Imageworks has been nominated for its work on Spider-Man, Hollow Man, Stuart Little, and Starship Troopers.
The Art of Open Season gives you an inside look at an explosion of color and talent, documenting every aspect of creating a CG animated film, from scripting and storyboarding to layout, animation, color, lighting, and visual effects with sensational full-color images throughout.
