I, Pet Goat II is a 2012 Canadian animated short film written, directed, produced and edited by Louis Lefebvre. The film features a commentary on American society and politics, particularly the agendas of presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, with allusions of Biblical theology and Egyptian imagery in a post-apocalyptic setting. The title is a reference to The Pet Goat (often erroneously titled "My Pet Goat"), the book children at Emma Booker school in Sarasota Florida read to President Bush at the time of the September 11 attacks which ends stating "more to come". The film is known for its strong use of cryptic symbolism and the conspiracy allusions.
Louis Lefebvre began production on I, Pet Goat II in 2006. By 2008, he had established his studio, Heliofant, in Montreal, Quebec, employing various 3D animators, and the Tanuki Project who scored the film. Lefebvre predominantly used Autodesk Maya, V-Ray, FumeFX and RealFlow software for rendering sprites and animation. I, Pet Goat II was released on May 24, 2012.
