This is another one of the first shots that we began working on. It was the ultimate combination of real sets, live-action puppetry and stop motion. Devin built the plane out of clay and filmed it on fishing wire. Evan built the NYC skyline with paper cut-outs. Ian designed and animated the waves on the down-shooter and Devin animated the splash with tissue paper. At the end, Ian pulled all the pieces together and threw in one his fancy, back lit tissue paper backgrounds.
