Because they knew 100% this time around the apes would be fully CG, they didn't bother asking us to make any ape creations. How ever we were asked to make an elk carcass. It need be complely believeable and was suppoce to have complete interaction from the CG apes. All limbs moved and the head had a fantastic realistic flop.
My contribution involved helping to finish and mold the body parts, which were cut down from a one piece taxidermy body form. I also added with clay the eye and mouth detail on the head form. We ran the body segments in a dense polyurethane foam. I also created the the floppy neck segment.
There was amazing hair and finishing work done by the rest of the team. All in all we did a fantastic job I think. Unfortunately as it goes, you don't even see it for a 1 second on film. Oh well! Please enjoy here!
