In addition to co-producing the film and providing aerial photography, Java Post Production also did all the VFX (visual effects) and colour grading for the movie "A.R.C.H.I.E." featuring Michael J. Fox. In this video, you'll see before and after examples of some of the VFX work done by Java Post Production, including digital painting, screen creation, 3D animation, and colour grading. Plus we make a dog talk like Michael J. Fox, so that's kinda fun.
Written and directed by Robin Dunne (Sanctuary, Space Milkshake), "A.R.C.H.I.E." is the story of 15-year-old Isabel Sullivan, who, after recently losing both her parents in a car accident, has just moved to a small town to live with her uncle Paul, the town's mayor. Feeling very alone, Isabel befriends a stray dog named Archie. Or, more accurately, "A.R.C.H.I.E." - Artificial Robotronic Canine Hyper-Intelligence Experiment.
This ain't your normal pound pooch. He's part machine, part dog, and totally awesome!

Fox as the voice of "A.R.C.H.I.E." and starring Katherine Isabelle (Hannibal, Ginger Snaps, Freddy vs Jason), Robin Dunne (Sanctuary, Space Milkshake), Sarah Desjardins (Magic Beyond Words: the JK Rowling Story, Floodplain), Johnathan Whitesell (The X-Files, The Unspoken, The Hollow), Fred Ewanuick (Corner Gas, Corner Gas: The Movie, Dan For Mayor) and Farrah Aviva (Swindle, Paparazzi Princess: The Paris Hilton Story).
