Guys…..we are just 3 days away from the opening of THE GOOD DINOSAUR……in theaters everywhere November 25th!!! As previously mentioned, I was teased with 35 minutes of the movie, and left hanging with what happens to little Arlo and Spot. ITS TORTUROUS!! Over the last few weeks, we have been sharing behind scenes information with you on this upcoming film. Here are our posts in case you want to catch up!
This post will be our LAST #Gooddinoevent post 🙁 Today we are talking with Screenwriter Meg LaFauve and Story Supervisor Kelsey Mann about the visual experience of The Good Dinosaur and how it was designing a big world!
As a few of us bloggers filled into the work room, you immediately feel the creative vibe that flows through the workspace. With all films, it takes large crew playing off each other’s strengths to make the full picture work. It was sooo much fun meeting with all the pieces of the team from the animators to the director to the visual production team….all pieces of the pie per Kelsey Mann.
” Your working on a little slice of the pie……we collaborate to bring it all together. “ – Kelsey Mann.
The room we were in had many story boards and different stages of art work. Meg talked about how the team will come in and pin up images on the board to inspire each other. Pictures of Jackson Valley in the Grand Tetons graced the wall and inspired the team to push the boundaries on the visual aspect.
Around the room are these Cintiq drawing boards so everyone can be on the same page and can collaborate together on certain scenes. I loved listening to Kelsey talk about the gopher scene as it is one of my favorites!!
Meg LaFauve, the Screenwriter has the biggest role in my opinion. She has to write out the script, make sure animators are true to scene, and make the full picture come together. According to Meg you have to “Feel it….Own it…..then let it go because it’s not my own. “. And with all Disney Pixar movies, the team agrees ………..
“No matter what you give them….they KNOCK it out of the park! ”
Oh and the incidental favorite among everyone is The Pet Collector.
I hope you have enjoyed all of our #GoodDinoEvent coverage, and please let me what you thought of them film when you go see it opening day!
