What an INCREDIBLE Father’s Day weekend! Yes, INCREDIBLES 2 opened this past weekend and it was a huge hit and so was Jack-Jack and all his amazing powers! During our visit to Pixar Animation Studios we had an opportunity to see the ”You…Have…Powers!!” presentation where we found out more about Jack-Jack’s powers and the challenges that came along with them from the Effects team Supervising Animator Tony Fucile, Effects Supervisor Bill Watral and Effects Artist Jason Johnston.
One of my favorite parts of the “You…Have…Powers!!” presentations was the creation of Jack-Jack. Supervising Animator Tony Fucile gave an INCREDIBLE insight on Jack-Jack’s animation.
While we sat in the theater listening to animators talk about how they turned Jack-Jack into a fireball. It was a fascinating process, it was something like four layers of Jack-Jack to make it a perfect image.
I love that Jack-Jack had so many powers. He had laser vision, he could teleport, burst into flames, multiply (a mother’s dream right), disappear, turn into a raging mad demon, and so many more.
It’s like the many talents that our children possess. Often, we limit our children to one thing in hopes that they will be great and make a career out of it. But like Jack-Jack our children have many talents (powers in Jack-Jacks case).
How do you encourage your child’s gifts and talents? If you have not seen INCREDIBLES 2 yet, please check it out and be sure to share your thoughts….I’d love to hear from you.
