For the very first time in our studio’s history, Rodeo FX has created three (3) matte painting environments for a fully CG animated feature film. Rango, directed by Gore Verbinski (The Ring, Pirates of the Caribbean), tells the story of a little pet chameleon (voiced by Johnny Depp) who aspires to be a swashbuckling hero. A series of unfortunate events will make that dream a reality. He eventually finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits, and is forced to play the role of lawman in order to protect it. This movie is another great collaboration between Rodeo FX and San Francisco based Industrial Light & Magic.
