    Crush...how do they do it?

    Just got back from the Disneyland Resort and was wondering how they made Crush from Nemo fame interactive? I'm thinking a guy with a microphone behind the crowd. Hoping someone out there can give me some insight into how this works. Thanks!

    My friend told me that it's this crazy real time animation program that they have. Basically, there's a window that is above the screen that the employees look through to see the audience. The actor talks as the animator works the computer program.

    That's pretty much it. I only know from the job application to the Stitch Encounter in Hong Kong (I didn't apply, just looked) that you were required to be able to speak like Stitch while operating a real-time interactive Stitch animated thing.

    I'm assuming that the Turtle Talk works on roughly the same engine...

    K I've seen the "magic" first hand here...It is just a person who can talk like Crush & who uses a joystick like computer thingy...I have no idea what it is..it's a huge nice LCD screen backstage with a joystick and a switchboard like thing..it's really cool.

    Nope, just voice actors. And unfortunately most of the time it's pretty bad ones who can't maintain the pitch of the character very well. I've only been impressed with the voice actor playing Crush once out of the 4 times I've seen the show.

    Basically it is a video that can respond to a voice! Like how some telephone companies have those messages "Please put your serial id" and you say it and they give you a reply!
