Animation Shoot

by Leah Meyerhoff

Animated dragons and unicorns oh my!

For the last month I have been living inside an animation cave. Literally.

We have been busy building a miniature forest in my living room, lighting smoke bombs on the roof, melting ice cubes in fast motion, making a dragon puppet breathe bursts of sparklers, igniting doll parts with flame throwers and exploding a cupcake or two.

As always, the process is at least as important as the product and if filmmaking isn’t an adventure then what’s the point?
