COVID-19 Chronicles: Locksmith Animation Zooms with Creative Touch
Each Friday, a hundred of the core creatives and crew on the film are using Zoom for their weekly production status meeting. Line Producer David Park had the idea to inject some whimsy into the proceedings by creating “themed” meetings. Several weeks ago, the first meeting took place with a theme: Virtual attendees dressed up as BBC newscasters (complete with appropriate backdrops) and a studio-wide practice was born. With input from the entire team, week 2’s theme revolved around “favorite albums,” with team members inserting themselves into iconic album covers from Sergeant Pepper to The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds to Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sounds of Silence. Last Friday’s theme was sci-fi … or, as Locksmith called it, “Sy Fri.”
