Scene 23 – Spys, Time Square Bombs, Immigration

This was an intense sequence that crammed a BOAT load of information (and puppets) into about 2 milliseconds! First up, Russian Spies…

As a reminder, the news story was that there was a super cute, red-headed, Russian Spy leading a double life in the US. Justin designed an awesome retro, James Bond-esque throw back which Trish used as a base to sew up one of her infamous plushies…

Once the puppet was built and photographed, Dave printed it onto a tiny newspaper then placed it in itty-bitty puppet hands for the shot…

Next up was Time Square…

Dave built an insanely elaborate set with functioning lights, smoke on a geared stick and a pretty sweet looking hot dog stand! This set was so sweet, it’s a shame it had less than a second of screen time in the end product…

There was also a big batch of New Yorker puppets that Trish sewed up that are barely visible in the final shot but beautiful non the less…

And last but not least, immigration…

There was a bundle of Mexican looking plush dolls that Trish sewed up for this shot and it was a real challenge to convey stereotypical Mexican without being racist.
