The Birth of Franky!!!

Posted by Blur Studio (Creator)

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!

      I've always heard about these voice tests on Making Of documentaries and such, but I never manage to see one. Pretty damn cool!

      This animation is very fluid. Good.

      If it weren't for the background noise, I'd have had trouble believing his audio was lifted from another movie. :D
