Sony Imageworks

Sony Imageworks:

Sony Imageworks started out as an effects studio (similar to Lucas’ ILM, like their work on Contact, Stuart Little series, Men in Black series, Matrix series, Spider-man series, Speed Racer, Hancock, and the coming Watchmen), but they also started doing animated movies:

The Chubbchubbs! (2002) (Sony) (Note: An Academy Award winning short that played before Men In Black 2)
The Polar Express (2004) (WB)
Monster House (2006) (Sony)
Open Season (2006) (Sony)
Surf's Up (2007) (Sony)
Beowulf (2007) (WB/Par)
G-Force (2009) (Sony) (Note: A coming guinea pig movie starring Nick Cage)

So it’s interesting. If it wasn’t for Robert Zemeckis, I don’t think Sony Imageworks would have been able to ramp up into pumping out these animations as quickly as they did.
