Daisy the dog

Misty Rosas (Sid) and Daisy the dog (Philbert) in their motion capture suits on the set of Sid the Science Kid.

Daisy the Dog is a great dane that provided the motion capture body performance of Philbert, Grandma's pet dog on the television series Sid the Science Kid.

Like all of the characters in Sid the Science Kid, Philbert was brought to life using the Henson Digital Performance Studio. For Philbert, Daisy performed on a motion capture stage to record the body movements while the dog's face and barking was puppeteered in real time by Bruce Lanoil. The two images were then simultaneously composited together to create a single integrated character.
