Favorite Shops

Although I love some (or all) of the work from each of the animation shops (and artists) listed on this site, the animation shops listed below (in alphabetical order with only their works that I really liked) have a particularly remarkable set of works.

icon Disney (Walt Disney Animation Studios) icon

Even though they integrated Pixar in an interesting way, they still use their own team to create the non-Pixar set of very good CGI-animated movies. And starting with the release of Bolt, Disney and Pixar have committed to releasing all new CGI-animated movies in Disney Digital 3-D.

icon DreamWorks Animation (a.k.a., PDI) icon

After the PDI animation shop's success with Antz, they were wisely integrated into DreamWorks and then created the break-through movie Shrek. Their animation is up there with Pixar, and they follow the similar model of great characters and story. Even so, they have carved their own niche with a little more edgy humor.
