The Gnomon School of Visual Effects presents “The Making of The Muppets” on Thursday, February 23, 2012.
The Muppets a visual effects movie? Were there CG puppets? No, but there were over 350 visual effects shots. In this case, the work done by the VFX artists gave the puppeteers additional freedom to make the Muppets do things they’d never been able to do in the past.
VFX Supervisor and Producer Janet Muswell will talk about the pre-production planning, working with puppeteers and puppets on-set, walking the line between campy and realistic and juggling the rolls of supervisor and producer. LOOK Effects’ in-house supervisor Max Ivins will discuss what they did and how (and why) they did. LOOK’s in-house producer Jenny Foster will be on-hand to explain the roll of a facility vfx producer in moving shots through the post-production pipeline.
