Curious about all the details and weird facts about the work that went in to creating Finding Dory’s favorite Octopus, Hank? Well we have some great new Fun Facts and a bonus clip about Hank to share with you this week! Please feel free to share this with your readers and please send me a link if you do!
HANKS FUN FACTS
LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN – When designers were working on Hank, the cantankerous octopus in “Finding Dory,” they created tapered tentacles for the cephalopod. The tentacles were modeled separately from the body, but when they tried to attach them, only seven would fit. Filmmakers later decided that it made sense that Hank would have an affliction, so they worked it into the script.
suckers are found on Hank: 50 suckers on each of his seven arms.
rigging prims were created just for Hank’s simulation (the average character requires around 20).
weeks were required of the team of technical directors who were responsible for building and articulating Hank.
weeks were spent shading Hank to give him extra texture and color, as well as making it possible for him to camouflage himself. (An average character takes less than eight weeks.)
The Science Behind Pixar,” a multimedia exhibit that opens Saturday at the California Science Center in Exposition Park, shows that for the artists at Pixar, like their counterparts at the Walt Disney Studio in the ’30s, scientific research is a key element in the creation of quality animated films.
