It’s true! This fall we’ll be releasing an album of our favorite Bob’s Burgers songs on iTunes. More details as they come, but one of these songs will air on our new episode, this Sunday at 7:00 on FOX!
When Eddie takes Roger Rabbit into the back room at the bar where Dolores works to cut apart the hand-cuffs in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the lamp from ceiling is bumped and swinging. Lots of extra work was needed to make the shadows match between the actual room shots and the animation for very little viewer benefit. Today, “Bump the Lamp” is a term used by many Disney employees to refer to going that extra mile on an effect just to make it a little more special, even though most viewers or guests will never notice it.
The same thing happened in the elevator scene in Terminator 2 when T-1000 is chasing down John and Sarah after Terminator helps them escape from the nuthouse. The fluorescent light breaks off and starts swinging around. I remember the guys in the special effects commentary talking about how much of a bastard that scene became because they had to change the light source on every single frame.
