All material is ©Disney/Pixar. This is my one shot for the film. I was never officially cast on Ratatouille - I was in preproduction on WALL-E at the time - but I couldn't resist the chance to work with Brad Bird again, so I asked them to slip me some work on the side. Rather than try to learn how to animate rats for a single shot, I requested they give me humans to work with. My wife, who was a competitive skater in her youth, helped me with some of the choreography and mechanics. I did not animated the mime (Bomb Voyage), the tourists, or Skinner. You can see some of my planning drawings for this shot here:
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
