|Day 28: The Crew|
The people behind the scenes
Alongside the amazing talent of all the voice actors and actresses, we absolutely cannot forget the unbelievable talent of everyone else behind-the-scenes. Today we spotlight all of those who (like the voice actors) have made Kung Fu Panda what it is today, and without whom the franchise probably wouldn't even exist!
I know a lot of fans out there (some of you wikians included) have at one point complimented the franchise on something done behind-the-scenes. I've read compliments on the animation, the choreography, the lighting, the colors, the special effects, and even the fur on the characters! All of this wouldn't be possible without people behind the scenes, who have spent a significant amount of their time in their lives improving their skills and working on these Kung Fu Panda products. Just to state the obvious, it takes a lot of energy, time and talent to make these products—it's something I personally don't think I can ever imagine without actually doing it. To get a taste of it, be sure you watch the video clip above.
This is another appropriate moment to recognize these people for their awesomeness and give them all a round of applause in our heads. But there are so many people involved that I don't have the time or energy to make an entire list here. Instead, I've provided a shorter list of links to all the comprehensive credit lists I could find on IMDB. Please take the time to look at them and give these amazing people the credit they deserve:
Don't also forget about the people who worked on the many Kung Fu Panda books out there, as well as any other games. I wasn't able to find any comprehensive credit lists online for them (other than partial lists on individual product pages), but give them applause as well. :)
Open discussion time again! Talk about anything you guys want about anything involving behind-the-scenes stuff. Here's a question to get you started: What is your favorite behind-the-scenes aspect of anything from the franchise? What do they do well? Could anything be improved?
