Tippett Studio is a well-known cg studio that specializes in feature film visual effects and creature animation. Legendary founder Phil Tippett is the creative force behind some of the most iconic animated creatures and characters in cinematic history, including the miniature chess scene in the first Star Wars movie, the animated robots in RoboCop, the breakthrough animated dinosaurs of Jurassic Park, the deadly arachnids of Starship Troopers and the transforming werewolves of the Twilight movies. The studio is located in Berkeley, California, housed in a collection of small buildings nestled within walking distance of each other. Our second day ended with a screening and highly anticipated tour of their main production facilities. We were not disappointed.
