Another very fun little video for Blue Peter. When you’re offered 10 minutes to film with someone, it’s often difficult to think of something fun and interesting to do in the time available. I think we nailed it here!
Although Peter Sohn, director of The Good Dinosaur, is relatively unknown to our young audience, his work with Disney Pixar (which also includes WALL-E, Toy Story 3 and Up) is very familiar. But he has a brilliantly childlike creative mind, which we leveraged to our advantage by asking kids to suggest features that he would build into a brand new dinosaur.
The popularity of The Good Dinosaur made this clip extra special. As well as being an exciting realisation of the inner workings of kids’ brains, it’s also a proper masterclass on how to draw a dinosaur in a Disney style.
