70 animators band together to create a theatrical shot of Woody Woodpecker

Woodpecker

A group of 70 (mostly Brazilian) animators has banded together to create a shot-by-shot remake of the 1961 Woody Woodpecker theatrical short The Bird Who Came to Dinner.

Each animator was assigned a shot from the original short and asked to re-animate Woody (known as Pica-Pau) in Brazil in their personal style.

Earlier this month, Universal’s live-action/cg hybrid Woody Woodpecker feature took the No. 1 spot at Brazilian theaters. And surprisingly, in its first three weeks, the film grossed well over $6 million.
