Behind the scenes in the making
|A "Marquette" is made for each of the 8 characters in the game. This is for client approval and for pulling molds.||A silicone mold is made of each character.|
|Scores of copies of each character get molded from clay. Then each copy is cleaned up and has the various details added.||Once a character has been "cleaned up" the animator has to pose and resculpt the puppet into the right position. Usually only a few positions can be sculpted before the puppet must be replaced with a new one.|
|Even though the image resolution was only that of a cartridge game, we shot 35 mm motion picture film so that we would have the maximum resolution to control color and contrast issues in post.||Each of the character positions had been determined and tested in pre-production using Cel animation. The clay animators then matched their sculpts to drawings.|
|One of Battling Baby's less pleasant defenses.||"Miss Lucy" delivers a kick|
|"Thing" in several incarnations|
