That's the best pet trick video I've seen in a long time. Especially the skateboard park shots. How the dog figured out to turn around at the top of the ramp is beyond me. My nephew has an English Bulldog, who has trouble fetching a stick, let alone surfing.
I was thinking the same thing, but couldn't for the life of me figure out they could fake it, yet still look so amateur. The dog's shadow looks real from the skateboard.
Its amazing what film students and graphic art students can do today on relativley low tech computers....let alone profesionals. I have a friend who works professionally on major Hollywood films, but he does all kinds of cool stuff just for fun at home....I dont know if this is the case here or not...but its not that hi-tech I dont think (guess).
