"This is a super amazing movie, full of great visuals. I follow along with the work that's been assisted by the NFB in Canada, and I've asked other filmmakers about how they were able to help. Can you explain what that relationship is like?…"

"That's really interesting. I have just done a snow scene, using washing powder (non-bio!), which was nice and granular, but of course it wouldn't stay still if touched by mistake. I like the petroleum jelly idea for some control.  BTW…"

"I worked with a great art director Winston Hacking who built all of the sets, and he came up with a solution for the snow made of salt and petroleum jelly that looked nice and animated well too. I think we used this mostly for close up snow, and…"

Simon Tytherleigh replied to Evan DeRushie's discussion Online Premiere - The Fox and the Chickadee
"Really nice, and a great fable. Liked the wings and the fur, both of which must have been quite challenging. And the great sense of depth in the wood. How did you do the snow? It looks very realistic, nicely rutted, but also great on the branches…"

Evan DeRushie replied to Graham Ludders's discussion Rigging, tie downs, and practice
"I would recommend practising animation with tie-downs, not rigging. There's lot of reasons to use rigging for animation- such as heavy characters or small feet. But it's an extra level of complication that you should avoid if you're…"
