Cartoon Production Information:
"We used as our inspiration the brilliant and quirky work of Terry Gilliam. We also tried to extend the film's dark humor into the animation, while maintaining the feel of the printed page coming to life," said Laika creative director Kirk Kelley, who directed the sequence.
"The challenge was to try to capture Charlie's personality in a paper puppet," said LAIKA/house animator Wendy Fuller. "We watched lots of footage of Mr. Douglas' performance, and hopefully, his essence comes across in the animation."
"Complicating the assignment in this case was the fact that we had to walk director Mike Cahill through the development and animation process entirely by phone," said character designer and storyboard artist Dave Fulp. "So we were relieved and thrilled when he was pleased with the results."
Release date is that of screening at the Sundance Film Festival; limited United States release date was September 14, 2007.
