Supervising Technical Director, FINDING DORY - Pixar Animation Studios

Hank, the grumpy but lovable octopus, presented one of the biggest challenges facing the artists behind the film, Finding Dory. How do you design a octopus that can deliver an appealing performance? How do you rig a character that can squish into a hole the size of a quarter? What do you do with all of those suckers? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this talk about how the artists at Pixar brought Hank to life.
