Quotes

William Plant: Technically, how it works you have, um, the puppeteer who has his controls, he's standing off camera, you have the actor who is inside the suit, and with the mechanical head on, and the um, puppeteers action - actions are transmitted by one of our special computers, um, to the- to the turtle head.

Nice doc
10 October 2013 | by (Co, Derry, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

I think this is the only "Making of" of any of the Ninja Turtles films. It starts off showing the Turtles phenomenon, then it has the creators Eastman and Liard explaining where did they came up with the idea. Then we see the Turtle costumes and animatronics.

After that, it shows rehearsals for the fight scenes and finally it shows the choreography for the Ninja Rap.

I saw this doc on Youtube, and I enjoyed it despite the fact I could hear that annoying static VHS noise throughout, but at least I could see what was going on.

I wish that a new retrospective documentary on all 3 films would be made. It should have interviews with all the cast and crew. Somebody give Arrow Films a call.
