Peter & the Wolf BTS - online at StopMoShorts!



Eric has done it again! I don't know how he finds all this cool stuff on the web, or talks people into letting him host it at StopMoShorts, but he's dug up three fantastic clips of behind the scenes goodness from Suzie Templeton's awesome flick! Click the pic to read an article by Morten Moen, who worked on the digital cleanup and effects that were added after animation was complete. Apparently there was quite a bit of it! In fact, it sounds like the animators handed the FX guys quite a massive job, which they obviously tackled and then some! It's very revealing to read the article, and it sounds like this could easily have been a disaster, if not for the hard work and ability of the effects studios. But it all came together beautifully.

Those of you wanting to see the film but who can't watch R2 PAL DVDs, here's your chance to see three scenes from it, both before and after cleanup and effects rendering.

How incredibly beutiful it looks. What great problems to be aware of. And how inspiring, even for my much smaller project. That forest is spectacular.

I'm amazed how every time I visit your blog (which I don't do often enough - shame on me and I'll do better from now on!), you manage to broaden my stop-motion horizon. thank you for that!
and I love Betty. Her eyes are amazingly hunting in a very disturbing (good disturbing :) way. Huck is a very strong character as well, but unlike betty I wouldn't want to meet him, nope.

Heh, yes I mist agree.... I'd rather meet Betty than Huck, although I've known more Hucks in my life. However I do like Huck better as a complete puppet. He has a great proportioning that she lacks. I wish I hadn't made her hands so big and clunky....
