Besides being a wonderful feature film, "The City of Lost Children" ("La cité des enfants perdus") by Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet also combines traditional computer animation and visual effects in a high quality project. The rendering of the film and the combination of computer animation and live action outline today's possibilities in computer animation in an extremely impressive way.
No one in France had made a full length film with so many different kinds of special effects ever before - direct, CGI and digital: 144 out of 800 shots, 17 minutes, one fifth of the entire film. BUF Compagnie did the CGI of "The City of Lost Children". In its ten years of existence, BUF Compagnie has gained a solid reputation in the creation of 3D computer generated special effects and had a long record of professional contact with Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro. They both have a taste for adventure, and the both had it fot "The City of Lost Children".
