This post presents a short making-of for the vfx of Ursul comedy.

The road movie/comedy Ursul came with a different kind of challenge for me, with all the scenes already being shot with our supervising.
I had to remove the harness and muzzle from the bear for which I modeled a simple head geometry, tracking the movement ( sometimes by hand ), render and composite more than forty shots. I created a Houdini asset, which took the 2d compositing tracking data into 3d and left the z-axis animable.
