Gentle Giant Studios is a company located in Burbank, California that was founded by animator Karl Meyer. They are pioneers in digital 3-D scanning and scanned many of the principle actors from Peter Jackson's Lord of the Ring's trilogy while on set/location in New Zealand during filming.

The company also has a collectibles division, known as "'Gentle Giant, Ltd.'" which was founded in 2002 and produces polystone mini-busts and animated maquettes from Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings.
