Behind the Screen: The Making of "What is Your Superpower?!"
The making of What is Your Superpower?! also involved several unusual challenges. Mid-project, Exceptional Minds moved its whole animation team home due to the pandemic to continue collaborating over Zoom, which presented its own set of challenges. (“Zoom “lag" can make an animation render like a 2D drawing and appear as incomplete work. Oh Zoom!”)
Still, the pandemic didn’t stop the crew from filming fellow artist Kate Jorgensen at Nickelodeon near a “secret” door that only a few in the industry know about (Howie Hoffman, an industry veteran who knows the back doors to more studios than he cares to admit, was the Exceptional Minds creative director on the project).
