This is how the whole set looked most of the time. Totaly crowded! Shooting through a nuthole isn't easy! Animating the ladder-scene Climbing ladders is hard in stop-motion A smile for the press please! And a waveing goodbye too! The Motion Control Camera in action This is how the backdrop was made. Film is fake! 23 Years
Thanks to all crewmembers!
