post-production.

as most people would say "do it in post", i.e us!

modelling and animation can com in pre-production in the for of pre-viz. which is just proxy animation for a complicated shot.

Just regular production i think, in the end the models will be imported in the footage using flame/smoke /FCP/prod premium/fusion-take your pick-. which is post production

pre production - storyboard, funding, pre-viz, script, etc

production - on set filming.

post-production - colouring, comp, vfx

So happy feet, Shrek,kungfu panda, wall-e etc are all postproduction?

But it's a fine line i guess

no they are all animations!

the line between VFX and feature length animations is not that fine imo.
