Christmas Train

On Tuesday we went to Ogden to see the Disney's "A Christmas Carol" train. It was here promoting the show that will be coming out this November. Basically it was four train cars that you walked through and looked at things and video of the movie. It was pretty cool. The first two cars had old English clothes and Charles Dickens books on loan from the London Museum. The next two cars were showing how they used morphing to turn actors into many characters. Like Jim Carey plays Bob Crachit, Tiny Tim, and Scrooge. They also showed how they used suits and things to make it 3D. They had models of the house they used for the cartoon. They are just white and then they add the color into the cartoon. I don't know if i can really explain it all that well. Anyway, at the end they had computers where you could morph your own face into Tiny Tim, the ghost of Christmas Past, or Scrooge. It was hilarious to see. Anyway, here are some pics of the day. It was really fun to get out with Jord and the girls and enjoy the morning together.
