The current episode of FXGuide TV has a lengthy interview with the creator and lots of behind the scenes footage. BTW, most of the background footage is miniature models.

Thanks for the link. I forgot to mention about the excellent matching between 3D and miniature models.

They even showed the Lightwave 3D screens for the character animation...

Wow... the visuals are amazing...

I really like what he says towards the end about "not hardcore sci-fi, not hardcore horror..." and "mixing them with personal drama." That's pretty much exactly the way I see it.

And the visuals are just amazing. I'm not so hot on the animal-like grotesque style of the main character, but from the way the film was received it really sounds like the put that style to good effect.

According of what he said at SIGGAPH, the story initially was about conservation and extintion (here I find a place for the animal style) then he changed the last part of the story.

According to Computer Graphics World, XSI was used for CA and that was brought over to LW with Point Oven.

well, I guess what I mean is that it frustrates me to see people focus more on the genre of their film than the characters themselves. I imagine the "personal drama" aspect would have played a pretty major role whether or not he was trying to make a point about conservation.
