Painting Rubber Penguins: Making Who Framed Roger Rabbit

The magic is in the details, and a movie like Who Framed Roger Rabbit is full of little things that had to be made for the project. Have a look at this informative video (part of The Elstree Project which seeks to preserve the legacy of the "British Hollywood") with interviews from matte and roto supervisor Annie Elvin, scenic artist Ron Punter, and pops master Barry Wilkinson. These particular stories are all about the making of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and what it took to bring the movie to life. Fake beer bottles, cartoony props and painted penguins are all part of what is discussed by the very people who made it happen.
