The movie The Call of The Wild will tell the story of a dog named Buck who has a big heart. However, his life changed when he was kidnapped from his home in California to an exotic wilderness of Alaska, Yukon, during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. Yukon is a place covered with snow and it has extreme weather.
According to film industry journalists, the film is directed by Chris Sanders and it takes a long time in the production process. However, Chris felt very happy because he would work with Terry Notary. Terry, who plays the protagonist in this film, can exchange ideas with the director every day on the set.
Sanders and Notary sit with the animator often, so they can work together in deciding how the animated Buck will move, react, and express his feelings.
Buck is not a real dog. The character was made with the CGI effect to not take risks because it puts real animals into the film and it becomes the main character. Some comments from film critics began to appear on the internet and many of them regretted this film. According to Fast Company, the CGI effect is not rendered properly and it is quite tiring for the audience.
However, there are still many who say this film is very neat and tense. The PETA organization even praised the film and they never supported the animals invited to the film industry.
“Amazing film,” PETA said.
In October 2017, the film company 20th Century Fox announced that they were developing a film adapted from the book Jack London. Then, in July 2018 the cast was announced and the photography process was completed at the end of September 2015 in Los Angeles. The Call of the Wild film does not require a lot of shooting places because some scenes are done in the shooting room that will later use the CGI effect. This film has a budget of US $ 125 million.
