If you could be behind the scenes......

I had my memory jogged earlier today and recalled a time a few years ago when I was lucky enough to get a tour round a local company that makes model for animation. The company are called Mackinnon and Saunders and made the puppets for Mars Attacks and The Corpse Bride amongst others.

During my tour I saw all the stages of the creation of the models, from the plasticine statues (Fantastic Mr Fox) being sculpted to the armatures being built, mouldings etc. I saw them refurbishing puppets for popular kids tv shows (Postmand Pat anyone?)

They did also have some of the old puppets they had made so I saw both Corpse Bride and Mars Attacks puppets close up.

So apart from wanting to brag a little, I also thought that some on here would be fans of the films, but I also wanted to ask a question.

So what halloweeny have you been behind the scenes of - film, tv, prop making, theme parks etc? And if you havent, then what do you wish you could have been be behind the scenes on and why?

I've been on several walking tours behind the scenes at Knott's Scary Farm - makeup and wardrobe department, mazes without talent or effects running and the designers talking about them, etc.
