In March, Sony Pictures Animation released the teaser trailer for Hotel Transylvania 2, slated for release September 25, 2015. Today they have made available the first of three videos dissecting that trailer:
This first segment, featuring production designer Mike Kurinsky, unpacks the trailer’s myriad visual and design elements, including the character design of Dennis—Mavis and Johnny’s baby boy—the construction (and deconstruction) of the rickety jump tower, and the secluded camp setting.
Animation artists know well the level of detail, thought, and craft that can go into even the briefest bit of animation. It’s nice to see Sony Pictures Animation educating the public about the efforts of its staff.
Next week’s segment will feature insights from director Genndy Tartakovsky.
