Sarah devised and co-ordinated a program for the team of animators at MPC & was beneficial to the way they approached the shots tasked to them & the subtlety of acting choices that were made."

—  Greg Fisher, Head of Animation, MPc

Groot was a really interesting character with some really specific challenges. As one half of the duo with Rocket it was essential that Groot’s performance connected with the audience emotionally and comedically. Even with a partially restricted set of facial features and dialogue.

We put a lot of effort into the eyes as the soul of the character. Aiming for a deep amber depth to them that was both alien and familiar. So, that a nuanced performance could be delivered through the subtleties in his facial expressions.
