Cara Malek: How to zip a two-headed dragon

John BeacomCharacter riggers create digital puppets for animation, the code that brings to life your favorite personalities like Po in Kung Fu Panda or Toothless in How To Train Your Dragon.

Cara Malek worked as a rigger on both of these films and will share her experiences on April 23 as part of Science Sundays at the Ohio State University.

Listen in to hear how Cara and her team overcame technical hurdles like how to “zip” together the two-headed Hideous Zippleback dragon (Barf and Belch) in How To Train Your Dragon or whether Shrek’s bodily odors should be colorless or not (we aim high on this podcast, people).
