I was watching this video on the production of the despecialized videos, and there was one part that really stuck out to me as strange. at the 18:29 mark the video talks about how Harmy had to create new animation to “recreate the subtle movement present in the original footage.” However when the creature lifts his head (specifically at the 18:33 mark) it almost look like its nostril/eye (the vertical slit) is sliding down on its face, staying relatively still on the screen as its head moves. Am I crazy? Did Harmy make a mistake? I believe the original movie used an animatronic so I can’t imagine it would have the same issue unless this is just a weird trick of perspective.
