Bonus: Brian Tong offers character ideas to PixarWhat the heck is a Tong Prawn? Brian asks Pixar to rate the characters he created on his iPad Pro for the next "Finding Nemo"/"Finding Dory" movie.
Ok so I know you're a character supervisor. Yeah. And I wanted to get your opinion on some characters that I've designed from my iPad pro. So these are characters that are of the sea and I want your real honest opinion, right? So here's my first opinion, it's called the Sea Ray, it's a sea cucumber/manta ray combination It's a hybrid It is a hybrid. These are all very sophisticated sketches and animals. Super hard. Right, super hard? I don't know how to do that. How about the tail action? Well, we'd probably stick one of our sea cucumbers on Mr. Ray's back, and then maybe you'd just be done, right? Yeah, let's just make this one a real easy one. Yeah, let's just get it done. Scale of one to ten, what do you think? They call him Sea Ray. I'd say it's a good, it's in the five range. Okay, I'll see if I can step my game up here. This is what I like to call the Dolphster. Sweet. The Dolphster, he's a dolphin who has lobster claws. For fish murder. Fish murder. We were also was lob fin was another one. I wanna [UNKNOWN] that That. You want it? Yeah. I can make that happen. That'd be sweet. Scale of one to ten. Again it's in the look a dolphin being a two and a crab or lobster being a 3 like add up and say five. Five. Wow. Okay. [CROSSTALK] We're at five across the board? Five across the board. Okay last one. This is a personal favorite. Heard of mine, okay? So this is a real original design. We like to call my last name as Tong. We like to call this the Tong Prawn. See, and this is supposed to loo like you so I'd say it's gonna be an eighter. Woo! Okay. Just to get that likeness plus the weird tail thing. What about designing the hair? Is that gonna be an issue for you? I don't know anything about hair. [LAUGH] So I've got to talk later on that department? [LAUGH] Yeah there's a whole other team for that and I'm the least qualified in the building to talk about that. Awesome, so eight or nine, I can do with that. Yeah, you're an eight or nine, buddy. All right, good stuff. [BLANK_AUDIO]
