Alex Claymation Super Compilation #8
- Spoiler - If you haven't seen Wallace and Gromit - Curse of the Were Rabbit and would like too, watch it first before seeing this video! Anyway, this video shows the difficulty involved in making an armature coated in fur. The issue here is that when an animator needs to position a furry character in between shots, there is a high chance that they will displace the fur. The solution is a sort of key-twist socket in the back to minimize handling of the armature and allow for control during animation. It is also important when conceptualizing a film to have the appropriate mood in mind. The creators wanted the film to be dramatic, but ultimately funny. With this goal in mind, they then can plot out the type of character that would best deliver this mood.
