In March 2012, Global Creatures teamed with DreamWorks to launch a live theatrical show based on the film "How To Train Your Dragon." Spinifex Group was contracted to develop the graphic content for the entire show. The goal was to take the movie from its original look and portray it in a more illustrative style.

Challenges focused around timing the animation to match the choreography of the actors and dragons, while also maintaining a sense of scale and balance between the animatronic creatures and the projected content. Also the animation needed to move as one seamless scene across both the wall and floor, serving as a complete theatre set. A first of its kind.

Matt Lock designed and animated the sections showcased in this video.

Additional credits include: 3D by Nick Hunter and Pepin Portingale.
