Ice Skating Dinosaur in Denver Park

This is very short but I just had to share this with you - just in case you find it as amusing as I did!

It’s not every day, after all, that you get to see an ice skating dino (is it a brontosaurus?) especially one who manages to pirouette so gracefully (if eventually!).

In reality this is an advert for Denver Science Museum. Smoke & Mirrors was responsible for this from concept through to execution. The CG team modeled, textured, animated and lit this ice skating dinosaur, seamlessly integrating it into footage shot by the team in Central Park and transposing it, through the magic of CGI to Denver, where you can see the Rocky Mountains in the background.
