When we began this movie we had no idea what we were getting into. Our producers wanted everything about this movie to be as unique as possible. We spent half a day in New York City shooting things like Times Square, the Staten Island ferry, Wall Street, and lots and lots of tall buildings. All this footage was for backgrounds.
Once back in our studio, we set up our new green screen and started filming our toy Justin Bieber and our toy Godzilla in stop motion at 15 frames-per-second. One of the most challenging things was getting the Justin Bieber toy doll to look like Justin Bieber. The doll was dated. Justin's haircut is new and different compared to what is on the doll. So we had to give him a haircut. Ever tried shaving hard plastic? Not easy.
Depending on when you see this, our behind-the-scenes look at this whole process is in our members area board in the behind-the-scenes section of our website. This film, between the storyboarding, animation, and the post production took us over 50 hours to complete. It bumped the release of Episode 5 back 2 weeks. Thank you for your patience. Enjoy!
