This morning, one of the first things I did when I hit the Floor was to check out the display that had been set up to promote Tim Burton’s upcoming stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie”.
After seeing the presentation in Hall H on Thursday, my estimation for the movie’s prospects rose dramatically and so I wanted to be sure to stop in and see the display, in case the movie turns out really awesome, I didn’t want to regret not checking it out.
Being first thing in the morning, there was no line and I was able to get right in. During the day, they only let a limited number of people in at a time in order to give everyone plenty of space to take pictures and look at the displays at their leisure.
The exhibit contains the actual figures that were used during the animation process, along with a number of the miniature sets. There were multiple figures for each character made, because scenes had to be worked on concurrently by multiple teams in order to complete the movie in a timely fashion. It can take days to get mere seconds of film time accomplished, so its important to have the coordinated effort to get everything done on time.
The display was obviously put together with enormous care, and staffed by attendees who were knowledgeable about the film, and encouraging to the visitors… click through to see the photos I took of the exhibit!
This is truly some amazing stuff. Thanks for sharing!
You know it, Shep. 🙂
I wanted to see this movie anyway. I love the stop-action animation, Corpse Bride, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc. This one looked cool to me but now it looks really cool. Thanks for the great pics.
Awesome, man, glad to hear someone else is looking forward to it, it looks really creepy fun. Can’t wait for it now.
I have so much admiration for this technique – it takes so much time to do but the result is just breathtaking. The film looks fun hope I’ll finally get to see good Tim Burton’s movie after all these years that passed since Sweeney Todd.
