As part of my ongoing Shoot the Freak documentary project, I have begun painting the backgrounds for my planned cut out animation. I completed the main backdrop, which is the boardwalk at Coney Island. The Wonder Wheel, including the swinging cars, will be fully operational when animated. You can read more about the creation of this painting in the Production Diaries on my blog.
