First Images From Frankenweenie Spin-Off Short Captain Sparky Vs. The Flying Saucers

If you saw Frankenweenie during its theatrical release, you’d have caught a glimpse of Victor’s opus, Sparkysaurus. A similar film-within-the-film premise has given rise to Captain Sparky vs. The Flying Saucers, a new short made just for the DVD and Blu-ray release.

The two first images from the film premiered over at USA Today.

Captain Sparky was directed by Mark Waring, an animation supervisor on the original feature. He explained one of the key creative problems to USA Today:

In the short, there are a few sections of [Victor] trying to very early use stop-frame technique. The whole thing’s stop-frame, so how do you make it look more stop-frame than it actually is?

Waring says they solved this by trying to make the film look handmade – the camera gets bumped, hands get in frame, strings are visible. Not really a direct solution, but perhaps the ideal misdirect.

I look forward to seeing the whole film when the Frankenweenie disc rolls out – on January 8th in the US and on February 11th in the UK.
