a little making of ´George and Paul´

Together With Pedri Animation we made a pilot for George and Paul,
Before Pedri started to make the puppets and the animation we designed the characters, made turnarounds and modelsheets.

we also made some more detailed instructions for the building of the puppets

With all this Peter Mansfelt made the first prototypes, they were already awesome!
but for the actual animation we needed better versions,
bigger and with good ball and socket joints.
These were created by John Craney.
Elmer Kaan did an awesome job animating the Pilot.
Of course he used a lot of rigs and wires, this was al cleaned up and color corrected by Cinemeta Digital, below you can see some before and after sequences.

If you didn't see the pilot yet or if you want to watch the storyboards for the series,
go and visit:

Phew! We've been back from Hollywood three weeks now. What a great time we had there! Learned a lot about the Hollywood filmmaking system and made some great friends and contacts! We even met the president. (We really recommend everybody who goes to America to meet up with the president at least once. He's a cool guy.) seriously we were invited to the Jay Leno show where Obama came that day!
The trip was organised by NBC Universal. The trip was the prize we won with our 3d short film the 3D-Machine. The other guys on the photos are the filmmasters from the other countries. Martijn Smits from Holland. Markus F. Adrian from germany and Dniel Guerrero from Spain.

they've made a sign on the hills, so it looks exactly like the map
we were invited to the premiere and party of 'Fast and Furious' YeaH!!!!

We were Universal studios guests for two weeks, although they kept us pretty busy, we did visited our friends at Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Cold Hard Flash, Disney Playhouse, Disney Channel, Disney XD and Walt Disney Feature Animation! busy busy busy
