Reader Mail #7 – Creature Design with Todd Jones

Another behind-the-scenes video! People have been asking a lot about the monster–how will the movie portray him, how will we do the effects–so while I was up in Minnesota I took the opportunity to interview Todd Jones, an absolute giant in the industry of movie creatures and effects. The lighting is terrible, and partway through a cell phone rings, but that’s just part of the charm of recording in a hotel ballroom movie-production headquarters. (Also, for continuity purposes: remember Jakk, from the last video? She’s just off-camera in this one, and at one point you can hear her laughing. We’re all a big happy family.)

    You should do an interview with some of the cast! Especially with Max/John and Christopher/Crowley. I can’t wait to see my favorite books come to life!
