I, Pet Goat II was directed by Louis Lefebvre at the Montreal area studio Heliofant. The sophisticated production design stirs mo-cap and keyframe animation into a mesmerizing Surrealist soup that is hard to stop looking at. Conversely, the film’s occult and spiritual symbolism–cataloged in excruciating detail on the company’s website–is almost embarrassing, like peering into the mind of a precocious high schooler who thinks he understands the world. If you can make it past that, there’s plenty to enjoy. Heliofant’s toolset consisted of Maya, Vray, FumeFX, and RealFlow.
