DPS Booth at SIGGRAPH 2000

(Left image) DPS software was used to assist in the developing of Chicken Run.  (Right image) Merlin Crossingham talks about the animation technique with the help of Mrs. Tweedy at the DPS Booth.



These three images show how Merlin, and the other animators who worked on the film, animated the mouth movements.  The heads were detachable to handle it easier, and the section of the mouth and neck could be taken off with ease.  When the new mouthpiece was put on, the seams were gently smoothed giving a flawless effect.

Key Animator, Merlin Crossingham demonstrates stop-motion.
