This is another image from the STEVE THE SUPER HERO music video. I kept putting off animating this shot because I wasn’t completely sure what I wanted these BAD GUYS to be doing. I had a lot of elaborate ideas, but they were all too time consuming and I was beginning to run out of time for working on the video.
Then along comes the film, DREAMGIRLS. I had never seen it before - but when I saw this sequence I thought “Hey! That’s what I need for the BAD GUYS”, – so I created a simple cycle for the BAD GUYS, trying to give them a little bit of “Dreamgirls” mixed with a little “HEY! SOMETHING REALLY STINKS!” … So this is what I came up with….
This is a pencil test from the shot.
