Framestore is a British visual effects company that was founded in 1986. They served as the creators of the CGI seen throughout Generation 1 of the Walking with... series.

Framestore was picked to do the CGI in Walking with Dinosaurs because their services were cheaper than Industrial Light and Magic. Only between thirteen-fifteen people were a part of Framestore at the time the company worked on the series.

[1] The first dinosaur they created for the series was Allosaurus. Framestore then went onto work on the Walking with Dinosaurs special "The Ballad of Big Al" and the sequel series Walking with Beasts. Framestore expanded its team to 27 for the production of both features. A total of 1,000 special effects shots were created for Waling with Beasts equaling to more than 30 hours of computer animation.[2][3] Framestore then proceeded to work on Chased by Dinosaurs and Sea Monsters. Their final involvement with the Walking with... series was Walking with Monsters where they created nearly 600 VFK shots for the series.[4]

Outside of Walking with..., Framestore also worked with Impossible Pictures on creating the visual effects for their series concurrent and after Generation 1 of Walking with... These include Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets, Prehistoric Park, Ocean Odyssey, and the first three series of Primeval. More recently, they have done work with Hollywood movies such as 2013's Gravity and 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron.
