Behind-the-scenes of Horton Hears a Who

The fine folks over at the wonderful CGSociety have a great in-depth, behind-the-scenes feature of the hit animated movie, Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who, by Blue Sky Studios.

Here’s a small excerpt:

Another explanation was the need to master “squash-and-stretch” techniques that transcended the boundaries of animation physics and character performance and believability in order to capture the wonder and imagination of a Dr. Seuss story. The aim was to produce extreme looks and movements, including an effect to make their legs move so quickly that they smear on screen.

Head over to CGSociety to read the entire two page feature.
