Finally! The wait is over! Here is my latest stop motion creation! It is a film noir…..or duck noir in this case….called “A Duck Walks Into A Watering Hole.”
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of making a duck film? Well, here are a couple of exclusive behind the scenes shots taken on the sets of “A Duck Walks into a Watering Hole”…..
Director Duck hard at work….
Director: “Quiet on the set! Fowl Situation scene…take one!”
Diva Duck: “I’m still waiting on my nonfat soy latte.”
Johnnie Waddler takes a smoke break between takes
Johnnie: “Movie making is stressful, quack.”
What is Gretta Vanderbeak telling Private Duck? Stay tuned this Sunday to find out in “A Duck Walks into a Watering Hole.”
Private Duck: “It could’ve been the way she wore her hair, but a dame like that was hard to forget.”
More scenes from “A Duck Walks into a Watering Hole.” Meet Gretta Vanderbeak…..
“She was the stuff that ruffled feathers.”
“Of all the bars in all the world, she had to waddle into mine.”
It’s not easy task making stop motion duck films…..from building the sets, making the mini props, making the costumes, the endless hours of photographing ducks, then re-shooting, then piecing everything together with music and a script. It’s definitely takes a good chunk of time. I don’t do it too often, but there happens to be a film festival out here called the “Three Cubed Film Fest.” Participants have 3 weeks to create a 3 minute film based on a title given to them. This time around everyone was given a phrase to complete on their own by filling in the blanks to this title: “A ___ Walks into a ___.” I was going to just go with the obvious “A Duck Walks Into a Bar,” but I tweaked it a little to make it a little more interesting. I ended up with “A Duck Walks Into a Watering Hole” and make it a ‘film noir’ style flick. The film will be finished next weekend and go live on Duckshow! Stay tuned for that! In the meantime, I’m going to post a few of my favorite shots from the film this week.
Duck-tective: “With my brains and your looks we could go places.”
Planet Fitness has been running a commercial all over the country mocking bodybuilders. They use humor to appeal to those of us who are not muscle heads. It was brought to my attention that this “lift things up and put them down” guy has a page on facebook and 6,712 people “like” it so far! Here is the Planet Fitness commercial:
So I thought I would do a little parody of it, with ducks of course!
Fitness Duck: “What do you do for a living?”
Muscle Duck: “I lift things up and put them down, quack.”
