Interesting use of occlusion maps.

nice, but misleading. It does somewhat lead one to believe that MPC did all of it.

We (Double Negative visual effects (http://www.dneg.com)) were considerably involved in the process as well, and even completed some of the work shown at that link. Very misleading.

I guess they have a better marketing department than you guys :-(
Still some really nice work.

Here are some more accurate write-ups. Still not perfect, but better. :)

Thanks for the clarification, jeremy. I didn't mean to misrepresent the work credit. It was more about the admiration of the attention to detail and the quality of the animation.

Its true, though. FX articles are more of a PR exercise than the technical walkthroughs a decade ago. I recall the old cinefex's covering the old photochecmical work, where they hun their failures right next to their sucesses. I, as they did, learned as much from their failures.
