The Birth of Franky!!!
Only THREE DAYS LEFT, Goon Backers, and about $80K to go! Let's keep up the FIGHT!!!
Today, we've got a special treat for you... some of the EARLIEST test animation EVER produced for "The Goon" Movie! As a means of CASTING the perfect voices to play Goon and Franky, we grabbed lines from existing films to 'audition' the actors. As you'll see in the clip below, we chose PAUL GIAMATTI and some dialogue from his film CINDERELLA MAN to see how it fit the character. Needless to say, we LOVED what we saw... and the rest was history!!!
We'd go on to finesse artistic elements in later tests (scene lighting, facial animation, etc.) but this little piece of animation got everyone VERY excited about the possibilities! Hope you enjoy!
