‘The Supporting Act ‘- Ad showing on BBC One

December 16, 2017

Okay, here I will first show you behind the scenes (see below). This is stop motion, and also I think, but not certain, perhaps some very subtle CGI facial enhancements.There are quick dancing scenes that are done very fluidly in stop motion. Yes, the animators did match the frame by frame puppet moves to ‘live action of a real person dancing’, but it was painstakingly done by the animator’s HANDS & EYES moving the puppet. From what they revealed, there does not seem to be any kind of Motion Capture used.

For the Technical Stop Motionists – In the more acrobatic dance moves, you will see the strategic use of puppet support rigs. You will likely have to watch many times or freeze frame the video The stop motion puppets as they are dancing, do 360 Degree spins with a puppet rig ‘attached’! Watching it a few times, I think I know how they did the puppet spinning in air with puppet rigs. What I did was, I download the ad/video and watched the animation and the puppet rig’s action, one frame at a time, or in slow motion using the Quicktme movie player.

When you view the video below, there is no audio/sound. You have to click on the Speaker Icon, to activate the sound
