Anonymous asked: With animations like 'Man Spaghetti', did you storyboard that or just made it up as you animated it?
With Man Spaghetti, I storyboarded a few seconds of stuff, then started animating it, while continuing with the storyboard as I went. All my work is made with some variation of this technique, and the first thing I usually animate on a film is the opening shot. So my work is planned out, but it’s like in Wallace & Gromit, where Gromit gets stuck on a toy train, and is laying out the track in front of the train as he goes. That’s my production schedule right there.
