Episode 6 of the Unmasked History of Scooby Doo features character designer Chris Battle, who worked on a redesign of the gang for the opening title sequence of the 2014 direct to video film, Scooby Doo! Frankencreepy.
Highlights of this episode include:
1- What the idea was for the redesign of the Scooby gang in the Frankencreepy title sequence.
2- How to design a silhouette of a character for animation.
3- What it’s like to be able to redesign characters that you grew up watching when you were a kid.
Make sure to listen to the episode above! Or you can read a transcript of the interview here.
Chris was kind enough to send me a photo of his redesign, which is attached above. At the end of the post, you can also see how his designs were used in the final title sequence.
