Big Movie Zone talks with Paul Novros, producer to numerous classic Giant Screen films including Africa: The Serengeti, Alaska: Spirit of the Wild and Forces of Nature. His latest project, Animalopolis, is a unique film made up of good-natured comedic animal segments.
BMZ: One of my favorite sequences is the opera-singing lion. Was there a segment that you really got a kick out of?
PN: That’s just about everyone’s favorite — including mine. But I think all the segments work pretty well. We were careful to design the film as series of complete short stories, so that the movie, as a whole, wouldn’t feel like it was just a patchwork of scenes. Anyway, other than the singing lion sequence, people seem to enjoy the bird mating dance, bears clam-digging, zebras, and red crab sequences the most. That said, in our testing (which was extensive), all of the sequences faired very well with the primary audience.
