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 ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) icon

While they are not in the business of creating CGI-animated movies like Pixar and the other majors, they are the masters of integrating animation with live-action. With each movie for which they create animated characters, they constantly break new barriers in animation (e.g., Jurassic Park).
