I usually get involved in the interviews about the animators and the filmmaking in general, because I had a chance. I got to know, not only Marc Davis, but Frank Thomas, Artie Johnson, Ward Kimball, all these great animators, and just ask them all these questions about how they did certain things, what their trials and errors were, the ups and downs.
And as particles are living digital elements, moving on their own according to the various attributes (such as weight, speed, shape) given to them by the animator, we don’t know what the visual result will be until everything is completed. This result can often be unsatisfying, obliging us to repeat the process all over again, with new features.
I got out my jar of ointment. I knew animators who had special containers for the ointment. Crockery, hand-blown glass, mystical symbols carved into the sides. I used an old Mason jar that had once held Grandma Blake’s green beans. Larry fished out a peanut butter jar with the label still on it. Extra-crunchy. Yum-Yum.
The animators bring their own spontaneity to it as well, because when they do a take of a shot it really is like just one continuous activity for them. They launch into it and do it, and they’re not even quite sure how it’s going to turn out when they’re doing it. They’re sort-of sculpting their way through a scene and trying to make this inanimate object alive.
Toward the end of the film [‘Life, Animated’] we see ‘The Sidekicks Story,’ and that is a story that Owen drew himself. We took that style, which is decidedly different from Disney animation, and used it as a basis. It’s a ‘two-dimensional’ hand drawn animated form, so I went to this company in Paris called ‘Mac Guff,’ and they assembled an amazing group of young animators, and brought it to life.
It’s a high honor to be a part of the Star Wars universe and such a long running show. Our talented writers, animators and cast of voice actors have made The Clone Wars truly unique. And of course we wouldn’t have hit 100 episodes had it not been for our incredibly dedicated fans who make this possible!
