As real-time technology becomes an increasingly important part of the filmmaking process from previs to final pixels, Weta Digital is exploring just how far they can push movie-quality hair, fur, and feathers for linear storytelling in real-time.

With the right graphics card, the Meerkat short will run at real-time.
