The article focuses on visual effects in various films like "Shark Tale" and "Finding Nemo." DreamWorks Animation Inc. was well into preproduction for Shark Tale long before anyone on the team saw Pixar/Disney's Finding Nerno. DreamWorks, therefore, came up with its own technical solutions for many of the same problems solved by Pixar for Nemo, as well as handling dozens of other issues unique to Shark Tale, which has a more cartoony, Tex Avery-style than its underwater predecessor. In particular, Doug Cooper, the film's visual effects supervisor, explains that Shark Tale required filmmakers to grapple with delicate lighting issues.
