Ultimate Animal

For those of you who haven't seen the Ricky Gervais show I highly recommend checking out some clips on youtube. It's essentially an adapted podcast in which they take segments from a radio show and animate them. I think the animated visuals really add to the humor. This clip is definitely one of my favorites. It's such absurd humor but Karl Pilkington is so ridiculous you have to laugh.



  1. Hi there,
    Didnt know how to make contact with you so im leaving a comment here.
    Do you have any knowledge as to creating the duplicate effect on this video?
    Any help would be much appreciated.

  2. Mostly good After Effects compositing, some green screen and lots of rotoscoping. Some camera "moves" are probably added afterwards, so shot static for easy of roto and then add the camera move. Some walking shots (dollies) probably used motion control to repeat the shot and add more characters. There are many low cost motion control sliders for DSLR type of cameras. Somewhere in this blog (a year or so ago) a student posted a behind the scenes video of something similar but I don't know the name of the post. If I find it I will re-post. Hope this helps

    1. Thank you so much for the reply!
      Truly appreciated.
      Cheers mate
