    I was one of the animators for Spiderverse, and it was simultaneously the proudest thing I've worked on and the hardest and most stressed out project. I'm so glad you guys enjoyed it, and even during internal viewings I've teared up a few times.
    Happy to answer questions if there are any.

      I don't really have a question, just wanted to say it's really cool of you to answer questions like this on YT. Into the Spider-verse was the Peak of Spider-Man presentation, and gave Miles Morales the mainstream introduction he really deserved. For your contribution to that, I sincerely thank you, and the many people you worked with to bring this movie to life.
      Hope you're also working on the sequel, I'm hopping in my seat waiting for it.

      @SomeJellyKid Hi! Thank you very much for your kind words! We did our best, and I’m so glad it showed, and made such an impact on people.
      You pose a few VERY good questions 🥲. I’ll answer the easy one first. I loved drawing as a kid. My cousins introduced me to anime when I was 5? 7? Before I knew it I was copying an Inuyasha or Card Captors screenshot from tv with pencil to paper, and that kept on for a while. Then I came across Final Fantasy 9 and subsequently 10 and 10-2, and watching Final Fantasy Advent Children was what sealed the deal of ‘’man I really wanna be able to create these super cool cinematics’’. There was a period of time in high school where that desire was tempered by practical majors to take like coding or engineering, and then I rediscovered that I just want to do arts for a living. It had gone from ‘cool cinematic’ to ‘concept art’ for some time after my new resolve (jr. year in high school I think), and then back to ‘cool cinematic’ i.e. animation, when I was looking at art schools for practical reasons. There are more animation jobs than there are concept art jobs, and in animation school I learned the hard way that I really wasn’t cut out for concept art. So animation it is.
      So…in a very longwinded response, tl;dr: passion, want, a sprinkle of ‘’I must do what I have to do”, and a dash of pragmatism goes a long way in wanting to stay in the industry. Also, the people you work with on a day to day basis, in general, are wonderful. It’s not a formal industry, and you get to have fun, and goof off, and be a kid in an adult’s body in between deadlines. They’re all there doing OT with you, and being burnt out, and hitting rock bottom with you. That hasn’t changed since animation school through to now in all the studios that I’ve worked at. The crew definitely helps keep things sane.
      I have to preface that I’ve been very fortunate in my decade long career that I haven’t experienced sexual harassment as a female in this industry, but it is a prevalent issue, and something to beware of if you are female.
      As for burnout…well…it was an inevitable thing for me. I’m sure there are people in the industry who manage to avoid it, and major kudos to them. Long hours and unpaid overtime is difficult to avoid with looming deadlines paired with, at times, poorly planned project timelines, or yourself. If you’re poor at managing your time to hit deadlines, then that’s a one way ticket to overtime. Depending on which studio you work at, it’s going to happen. Games, TV, VFX especially. If you’re lucky, the studio pays overtime and feeds you dinner. I don’t have a rosy answer for you in how I deal with it. I don’t think it’s pretty for anyone. Since there is no way for you to control the work situation, and assuming you’d want to follow through with the project or contract, the best you can do is to prepare for the inevitable as much as possible. Have very supportive friends and family, work friends you can vent to, and if you can afford it, therapy.
      But I think, it comes down to what you want out of this career. The grind is real if you want to work at studios like Sony, Disney, Pixar, Blue Sky, Blizzard, Playstation, etc, etc. If that’s what you really want, I think your drive and support network will sustain you for a while. If you’re in this for being super creative, and you aren’t really focussed on big name studios, there are lots of places that treat you well, and keep your work-life balance in mind, and still make cool stuff.
      It was a lot of hard self-reflecting after Sony Imageworks, if I wanted to continue being there or not. That was the most burnt out I’ve ever been. My husband, friends, therapy, and the current studio I work at really helped in recovery. The work-life balance is great, I’m valued as a team member, and I’m still working on awesome titles (Hogwarts Legacy, Gears of War, Mario Strikers, etc).
      Everyone’s path is different though! I’m sure if you’re able to talk to another animator, they’ll have a different story so take all this with a grain of salt.
      There are plenty of animator jobs floating around! Just be prepared to move to one of the animation hubs (CA, TX, Vancouver, Montreal, etc) since it looks like a lot of studios are now reverting their work from home policy. Also, keep up the work you’re doing! The upside to the industry is the barrier to entry is low, just gotta persevere.
      Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

      Hi! (idk if you're still able to respond to this thread since ik animators be hella busy, but I'll give it a shot) You and the rest of the Spiderverse team really knocked it out of the park with this one. Seriously shot up to one of the biggest inspirations for how I'd like to be able to animate in the future. Thank y'all for pouring your hearts and souls into such an amazing movie. 💙
      ANYWAY, I was wondering how you'd deal with burnout? What's your motivation for getting into the industry and staying even when things got tough?
      (Some background if you have time)
      I'm in college rn (not for art or animation) and would love to be able to become an animator or storyboard artist. It's a huge risk given the nature of the industry, but it's one I'm willing to take. It'll definitely be harder since I'm trying to build my skills and portfolio/reel largely on my own. All this is to say that even though animation has been my passion, I'm afraid of being unequipped to handle the pressure of stepping into such a terrifying industry, so I'm wondering how you've dealt with it given your experience.

    The scene where Miles' dad is telling him he supports and loves him through the door makes me cry every time. The first time I saw this movie I had a really strained relationship with my dad and I knew that it was something that he would say and had been saying but I just hadn't heard it. I broke down crying in the theater during that interraction.

    Something I like to point out is that when Miles leaps off the building, he pulls some of the glass off, and we know that he sticks to things when he's scared/nervous. So it's not like he's not scared when he jumps, he's just stepping through the fear.

      Although this all got retconned after the incursions where they made miles apart of the main 616 universe and revived his family.

    The chromatic aborrition they used also replicates how sometimes old comics were printed a bit off, so small mistakes would make the different colors print at an offset from the lineart.

    What really gets me is the shot were we see the glass tear away as Miles makes the leap. Miles sticks to things when he’s terrified, and he can’t unstick until he relaxes. He is completely and totally terrified when he leaps, but he finds the mental and physical strength to tear himself away from the glass. This time, he chooses to leap despite the fear, he doesn’t fall by accident like the first time.

    "It's good to have role models. It's good to have people you look up to. But you can't just ape someone's style or the way do things because at best you'll always be a cheap imitation or passable imitation...what you have to contribute to the world is what YOU bring to it."
    What a great message for everyone, young and old! We usually give this kind of message to teens as they're still figuring out who they are, but even as adults we continue to try to become those we look up to instead of learning from them. Thanks, Cinema Therapy!

      that's why I like the movie miles so much better honestly.
      comic book miles always felt like a cheap copy in some ways.
      this became especially apparent, when they decided to put both peter and miles spiderman into the same universe, both alive and both being spider-man. made very little sense to me honestly.
      if they want them to share a world, then miles needs to rebrand.
      peter will always be prime spider-man.
      they need to give miles his own spider-title, if they want them to co-exist in the same universe.

    Honestly my favorite part of the scene that builds into the best shot in cinema history. Aunt May was sitting there, Aunt May knew the whole time he was going to make it that he was going to be there. She had absolute faith in Miles, a kid she had known for a few hours at most a kid who was in way worse shape than Peter was when he got his powers ((Peter is typically tail end of Highschool when he gets his powers, Miles get it just starting Highschool so he's actually one of the most powerful as it also affected his development and skyrockets the power he gets but that's not important here)) May just knew he'd make it, that look the tea in her hand. She had one of the things you need when you have those role models, absolute knowledge that you'd make it, that no matter what happened, how you fell or how you bent and broke, that you would make it.

      ​@BetterLateThanNever BUT BUT! The early comics didn't always use the proper ink saturation or lines per inch due to how cheap they were running everything. Hence, Lichtenstein making his pop derivative works that didn't properly credit the source artists.
      (Hell, even more current ones. Dark Horse was running the interiors of their Usagi Yojimbo books at... 120 lines per inch if I'm remembering correctly, and the cover was maybe 150? Been over a decade since we switched to direct to plate, so I don't remember all the stuff from imaging the films. Other than maintaining the film imager sucked, cleaning everything when the density dipped was awful, and I'm glad I don't have to deal with gallons of developer chemicals anymore.
      I could probably check if I can find the line-screen measuring tool we used to have and if any of the film hasn't been recycled yet.

      Ben Day dots are clearly what the animation team are trying to reference, since most comic books of that era used flat blacks for their line art rather than halftones (although of course, it's a big industry, there are always exceptions, but screen printing was a far too lengthy and expensive process for most comics).
      They wound up using different sizes of dots to make the effect read more efficiently, so it's not TRUE Ben Day, but like... c'mon, we know that's what they are trying to evoke, and it's not screen printing. I mean, if you're using proper ink saturation while screen printing, you don't even see the dots in a final screen print piece, you only see the dots on the screen! ;) And don't get me started on manga halftones, they don't even all use circular dots!

      I see it as him being ready to be spider-man doesn’t magically make him being good at spidermaning. he’s still physically not used to it with all the muscle memory stuff, so his hands still latch on the glass very tightly. And you can also see that when he reached the reactor, taking off his mask and panting. doing stuff that you’re not used to will make you tense up and the adrenaline speeds up your blood circulation, leading to a higher ventilation rate

      There is also the detail of how Miles gets to the ceiling in the climax, where Peter B and Gwen say they didn't teach him that, it's the exact method Miles' Peter got up there in the first act. Where Miles is learning, not just from the people who taught him, but the people he idolized too; that even though he is more confident and more of his own individual, he is still filling Spiderman's shoes and trying to fit his hero's shadow. It's a great acknowledgement of personal growth while admitting he is still a kid with some growing left to do. It's also a great moment of Miles picking his mentors and his lessons, learning what he needs to know and making it part of him.

    The way that Miles webswings is unique to him. Peter B.’s is more relaxed because he has been webswinging for so long. People are saying that he swings more like Chris Pines’ spidey, but I think he is more like his uncle. He didn’t webswing a lot, he mostly did a lot of parkour around the buildings.

    Beyond the comic aesthetic, I also love the way this movie respects and imitates the style of graffiti, especially since graffiti is considered a "low" art form. And the texture actually isn't Ben Day dots, it's CMYK halftones! Ben Days are all uniform in size (think Andy Warhol), whereas halftones gradiate (I'm citing CinemaWins on this one).

    I kind of low key loved that Miles powers were based on his strengths and fears (imo). He wants to hide away from expectations and the eyes of the people around him, but he’s also got this electric personality with explosive creativity just dripping off him. He’s got so much potential, but he wants to hide from it (he doesn’t know how to use it or even that it’s there in some cases) and you see that in his super powers and how sporadic and uncontrollable they are for him. Thank you for coming to my TEDtalk, I hope you enjoyed my mini theory.

    22:08 One other thing about this entire sequence is that it not only shows Miles lingering nervousness (the glass breaks when he pushes off of it meaning he didn't fully 'unstick') but he doesn't straight up swing everywhere like the original Spider-Man or any of the others for that matter. Over the course of his entire traversal from the first building to the overlook, he only shoots five webs. He uses it to get altitude and speed, but a large portion of his motion is running, jumping, and parkour. After all, he 'runs better than he swings'.

      An excellent analysis comes from sideways music channel where the big moment where he leaps of the building.
      It's not just a hip hop song (which represents Miles regular identity)
      Its not just the spider man theme (that's been built up with each spider character)
      And there's also a tiny motif when Miles is doing something spidery.
      That moment he leaps is all 3 pieces of his musical identity tied together.

      He put his own flare into it, while still respecting where he got it from. However that's not the only cool thing about those parallel scenes. The other cool thing is the inversion of colors. Peter was the only color in an environment that seemed rather grayscale, meanwhile miles did it as the only dark item in am environment of colors.

    Miles is the insecure everyperson here. He's in way over his head and has only the most vague idea of his purpose. But he rises to the occasion and not only decides to the do right thing, he explodes into the role. He has no idea what to do at first, but his first thought is to do GOOD. It's one reason why I love this movie. Miles knows what heroes are. Spiderman, his dad, the dedicated cop, his mom the medical professional. Miles knows what good IS, he just needs to figure out what good he can do.

      And it's kinda validating that the entire time he has a support system. He has the spider support and the familial support. It's not an easy thing to do even with that. But it's validating that sometimes change comes from not just a demand for it, but because you have enough that you can choose it, that you aren't doing it out of desperation but because you want to do good, to do better. There's not enough of those stories out there.

      @Infernez Zenith I'm always gonna be a Peter fan personally, but I still strongly believe that Miles will end up being a better Spider-Man purely for the fact that he enjoys being a hero. Like Nightwing is a better Batman, and Wally West is a better Flash than Barry, these legacy heroes has something that their role models don't have. They don't need to worry about gaining the people's trust the way the original has to, they get the benefit of having more resources before they even start out, and they get to learn from the mistakes their mentors make. If your student doesn't become better than you after you teach them, then frankly you're not a great teacher.
      I'm sure people will have different preferences for the type of story and character they prefer, but that's always gonna be how it is. What I'm saying is, if Marvel nurtures Miles' growth in popularity, I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up becoming more popular than Peter. Remember the JLU cartoon? Wally was the Flash for an entire generation or two, and could've stayed that way if DC didn't get nostalgic for Barry. That's the type of potential I'm talking about.

      ​@Bombastic Catman Miles in the comic has little in resemblance to the miles depicted in this film, but that is beside the point.
      We have no idea of what Miles' Spiderman's origin story is. We know the Remi film's origin story and many comic version story, but not this Spiderman's story. Which is just fine, we just need to acknowledge we know nothing about this Spiderman other than he was well-liked and died.
      I think a key thing in this film's Spiderman is that this is a kind-of-sorta passing of the torch, but it is difficult to tell. We have another Spiderman, and whatever his origin story is, who acknowledges and mentors Miles. Miles is a good kid, but also stands on the shoulders of the previous Spiderman, using him as a role-model. A role model Peter didn't have. Peter Parker literally defines what it is to be Spiderman to Miles, as he is that world's first.
      If we accept that both original Spiderman has the same Uncle Ben dies story( we have couple reason to believe they share the same story), then that changes a few things, I think. Does that excuse Peter's selfishness? No, and it costs Peter as you point out - but these are two different characters with different temperaments, backstories, and family relations. I think the enjoyment of the two stories comes down to which you enjoy more:
      Peter: A person who isn't inherently virtuous, but learns to be better through effort and errors.
      Miles: A person who is inherently virtuous and has a role model in the previous incarnation of Spiderman to further help guide him.
      There is nothing wrong with either of these story lines, but to say that one is "Better" than the other seems a point of subjection based on the execution of each story.
      We also don't have a great idea of how Miles views being Spiderman in 'Into the Spiderverse" as he's been Spiderman for a couple days. It has impacted his life, but he hasn't had a chance on screen to really internalize it. We'll get to know him more in the second one, to which I look forward to.

    I love the distinct ways that every Spider-Man moves. Peter B moves like we'd expect of Spider-Man in a fight, but he uses his powers in super mundane ways, like when he uses his webs to ring the doorbell or saunters down the side of a building. Gwen is like a ballerina, she even has ballet shoes in her suit, and she has these really cool flourishes and grace in her movement. Noir relies mostly on hand-to-hand fisticuffs instead of his powers and Ham obviously uses cartoon slapstick liberally. And when Miles finally comes into his own, his style is entirely unique to all of them, even Blonde Peter: it's more like parkour. He wall runs and hops on buses and relies less on purely swinging and more on getting from one surface to the other. He hasn't had a lot of practice swinging with his webs, but he's had practice with finding ways to parkour over walls and fences in the city (as seen when Aaron shows him a new spot to tag), so he relies on that and uses his new powers to supplement it. I find that so incredibly cool.

    Peter Parker and Miles Morales’ relationship has become my favorite thing about Spider-Man.
    Peter so often carries so many burdens on his own to the point that it borders on martyrdom. But when Miles came along, he simply couldn’t do things alone because someone else needed him.
    On the other hand, Miles brings a new layer to the Spider-Man ethos. He’s youthful, extroverted, and comes from a completely different background and culture. He has a much stronger support system that he is more than willing to protect. And because of that, Miles is very invested in Peter’s well-being and I LOVE that.
    Miles Morales is just the best. He’s my favorite character.

      @B Oh yeah no totally. That’s another reason why I love the Peter/Miles dynamic because it actually feels NEW for Peter’s character.
      Peter Parker (or moreso his writers) keep fumbling his love life to the point that it’s gotten old. His villains aren’t new anymore and the stories have been retold and reduxed to death.
      But Peter Parker mentoring a kid that’s both so different yet so similar to him actually forces him to grow.
      That being said, the Spidey comics haven’t been great for years now (for Peter or Miles really). I’m honestly starting to prefer movie, film, and video game content far more than the comics.

      Your comment just made me realise something...
      As a hero, Spidey can be hit and miss. With a lot of misses when not written very well.
      But as a mentor, Peter always excels!
      And through the exact same things that can easily make him annoying: his self doubt, sometimes reaching into self-pity, his occasional dislike of the responsibility he can not help but hoard, his "I'm so funny hahah" wit....
      Not only will he feel the immediate responsibility for the wellbeing of his mentee, It all means that no matter what his pupil is telling himself, Pete has told himself much worse. Butt then talked himself out of it, so he knows what works. And that he knows that sometimes you need a soft hug, sometimes you need a thumbs up whole playing catch, other times you need your legs swept so hard your body inverts momentum and you fly up in the air.

Earlier in the movie when Miles is stuck to Gwen's hair she tells him to relax to let go, but his anxiety wouldn't let him. In the same sense when Miles takes his leap of faith, he's too scared to let go of the building, but he breaks through the fear and jumps anyway by pulling the glass down with him.

    Spider-Verse was such an incredible take on a Spiderman film. All the other films so far have hammered on "With Great Power comes Great Responsibility." This one touched on it, but it had a different nuance. Each of the Spider-Beings in the film were the first/original in their universe to have been bitten. They all had to come to an understanding of their powers on their own, and they came to shoulder the great responsibility naturally over time.
    Miles was not the first. He had a predecessor. So it makes sense that his motivation is different too - he knows he has a great responsibility. He's seen it. It's such a great responsibility, it probably felt crushing to think about. An extremely experienced and seemingly invincible Spider-Man was all he'd ever known, and he was suddenly asked to step into his shoes after he was finally defeated. It makes sense that he would feel like a child amongst adults sometimes, and feel like he is not being treated as an equal. It makes sense that overcoming his own Great Expectations is his personal battle, not growing into his Great Responsibility.

      It's a great reversal. His elders - parents, teachers, mentors - all impress upon him a mountain of responsibility. They see his potential but they express it as "expectations". You must do this thing or you will not be what you should.
      The thing they are able to accomplish with Miles as a successor is that the other spiders got the power and had to learn responsibility. In their own ways his father and teachers did too. He already gets that. But he doesn't yet know himself. Even when he has his powers he doesn't really know what he can do. That act of becoming is the reversal: acquiring the *power* to take up his *responsibilities* and achieve them in his own way. He is his father's son, but not. He is Spider Man, but not. But those differences, the things that are not, do not make you less. They make you custom suited for the story ahead of you.

      @msk the quote which originally appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15, the correct phrasing is "aware at last that in this world, with great power must also come-great responsibility!" Only the movie "No Way Home" quotes it accurately, and none of the other movies say "ought." Like you said,"ought" suggests a choice, like it's the way it should be but not necessarily the way it is. The correct quote uses "must" meaning there is no choice. It is imperative that Spider-Man use
      his/her powers responsibly, which Spider-Man in all iterations/universes ends up learning when they lose their loved one.

    I can highly relate to the whole "comparing yourself to a role model and it being bad" thing. Storytime! My sister is one of my biggest role models, and has been since at least kindergarten. When I was in first grade (probably 2ish months in) I skipped into second. I barely saw anyone from my first grade class, and had a hard time getting to know my new classmates. Consequently, I was friendless. So, I decided to focus on academics. My sister had excelled at school, and I made it my goal to beat her. It was probably around 5th grade that I realized it was unhealthy. I had set all my goals relative to her achievements, and we did all the same sports, too, making it even worse. I had set all these unreasonable expectations for myself, putting her on a pedestal at the same time, and it was hurting both of us. Now I'm in 8th grade, and I still struggle with not comparing myself to her. I don't really know how to figure out what goals I should reach for, because I never learned. It really sucks. Still, I've gotten closer to her, and I feel so much more free to be myself.

    THE GREATEST SHOT IN CINEMA HISTORY. The chills and goosebumps that I got during that scene I have never experienced with any other movie or TV show. It is absolutely brilliant and I will never get over it. The animation, the music, it being such an important moment... UGH. SO GOOD.

    One scene that really gets me every single time was when all the spider-people are in the spider-lair and they kept putting pressure on miles. When the pressure and the music swells, then everything stops and the rest of the spider-people talk about how Miles isn't ready, then Miles suddenly turned invisible and left...gosh that tears me up every time....

    this movie has no right being as amazing as it is. I don't know who woke up one morning and simply decided to construct a masterpiece but they and everyone who helped construct it deserve far more recognition than they've already received. despite without a doubt going down as one of the greatest animated films of all time, I still feel like this movie is criminally underrated. I thought the hype would die down a few years after it's been out but really it feels like it only gets better on rewatch.

      So much this. The people making this film didn't have to make it THAT good, it still would have been amazing and made huge amounts of money, but nope, every single little detail they've tried to make as close to perfection as they could. Most great movies you can point at some aspect that was weaker than the rest, but this one just HAS no parts that are less than the others, it's just consistently excellent and boundary-pushing in everything it does. Even that reinforces the message of the film: don't strive to do what everyone else is doing, just do you, the very best you can; you'll be fine.

    When I originally saw this movie in theaters as a pre-teen, I was so captivated by the story, but never understood it by heart til I rewatched it, currently in my high school year. The ideas that Miles is going through a change in school due to the idea of expectations punched me in the gut because it is extremely hard not only for getting place to place but the weight to wanting to fulfill those and prove my worth to my parents and teachers that I worked hard to get where I have to be, and as a first born generation in America, I don’t have anyone to guide me or show me the ropes and techniques to survive. With all that stress with schoolwork and problems with friends, I was a literal time bomb wanting to leave. It wasn’t until rewatching this helped me realize that I don’t exactly have to exceed the expectations that my mentors want in their own way, but rather my own skills and strengths to help me, which is seen through Miles’ swinging techniques as he does more parkour through the process. It is true from the movie that almost anyone can wear the mask, as we’re all gonna become better people and do good for the world through the experiences that shape and mold us into who we become.

    The subtle thing I like a lot about this movie is how Peter B. Parker is constantly trying to let himself die. I think that says a lot. He could easily take his own life, but he's trying to do it indirectly by staying behind and saving everyone else. That's often how suicidal people can act. They don't want to actively kill themselves, but will neglect their health and safety in the hopes something else will take care of them instead. They put this in a Spider-Man film. Just wow.

      I think in one of the comics, MJ accused Peter of something like that, in that case she said that it's the reason why he never made any gauges or indicators of how much web does he have. That he's basically indirectly trying to die, pushing his luck more and more knowing that one day he'll run out at the worst moment

      It is also a reasonable idea to believe for himself. Miles isn't ready, and he doesn't want to go back to his own universe and face his demons, so staying in miles' universe is a decent option for him, his health be damned. He's justifying to himself that he's fine to stay and probably die because he's needed here and not where he came from. It's not just a suicide allegory.

    There was these directions about the shot, talking about how they wanted Miles to look. And the instructions read, "He isn't falling. He's rising." And it just made it so much more amazing.

    What I love about this episode is that it's more about the filmmaking than it is about the therapy/human relationships.

Thanks Team. Have an awesome New Year. 😄

    Another little detail I love in the "falling up" scene is when he's falling and whirling around to get his bearings, and when he finally turns his aim downward. The parallel panels that stomp across the screen of him "locking up," with the beats that go in time with the music. There's just something about that split-second moment that rocks my life so hard.

    The scene that ends with the “I didn’t teach him that, and you definitely didn’t” is genius because Miles does things his own way, but if you notice how he gets there using something’s that he watched Peter Parker do the first time he was there. It’s uniquely him, but finally using mentorship as what it is, a tool.

    Something else I love in the moment where he trips in the building and breaks the goober is how it all happened. He chose to go to the smaller building because he was scared, he played it safe which stopped it from being a leap of faith. He inherently didn’t trust in his own abilities and let his fear take over.
    And the thing that makes him fall is his untied shoes, something he said was a choice. The biggest mistake he made in that jump was that he was trying to be Peter’s Spider-man but was still just Miles. Those untied shoes represented who Miles was before the bite and he was still being that in the moment. From that point onward, he keeps his shoes tied because he learned. While he does make his own thing with the Spider-man mantle, he still took in what worked and what didn’t, as well as learning key points from the others that he applies in his own ways

    4:00 what’s really neat about it and what took so long was they wanted to emulate the Ben Day comic book style, but if the dots all stayed in the same place like they do it would have no depth. It would just be like zooming in on a flat image. What they ended up using were half-tone dots, which are tiny dots that blend into other tiny dots to form colors. Close up they become more obvious, giving it more spatial definition and it allowed them to do exactly what y’all were pointing out with changing focus and conveying depth by having them spread out

    I really liked how much y’all talked about the animation details (like miles being crunchy but better being smoother swinging) and other artistic details that I didn’t notice (like how the first time he saw the suit his face didn’t match up with the mask but later when he is able to control his powers, it does). I know usually y’all talk about things from a therapist viewpoint but I really loved how much details y’all pointed out that I never noticed. This is my favorite movie and those little things make it even better

    The other thing about the Leap of Faith scene is that it's not even necessarily that Miles is Falling Up, but he's *rising.* It's quite possibly the most nerve-wracking, anxiety-inducing, sink or swim moment in Miles' whole life, and he's literally rising to the occasion. He's choosing to rise to the role of Spider-Man as himself instead of chasing after what Peter left behind.

    This conversation speaks a lot to me. I’m a theatre teacher, and I wanted to be exactly like the theatre teacher I had in high school, and I wanted to build the exact same program I had in high school. My first year teaching, I was a fresh, college-graduate in my mid-20s, very little professional theatre experience, and I was hired at a tiny school with a microscopic theatre program. I was constantly comparing myself to my theatre teacher, and I was really insecure about the kids comparing me to the theatre teacher I replaced, so even though I did not know the guy at all, I was constantly comparing myself to him. So many mental breakdowns that year, a big one in front of the kids. I finally had to let go of trying to meet these grand expectations I had for myself, recognize that this was my first year of teaching and I needed to build my program, my students, and myself one small step at a time.

    I love the subtle symbolism behind each of Miles' leaps of faith. The first time he tries, his shoes are untied, representing that he hasn't yet matured into his Superhero role. They're tied during his next attempt, showing his newfound responsibility.

      @Pristine Whens! Did you miss the part where they said, in this very video, that there are no accidents in filmmaking, especially in animation? The shoelaces was 100% a deliberate choice by the animators. They were 100% going for "it's that deep."

      @Pristine Whens! I think s because you're not joining in with the conversation in a positive way - you don't have to agree with everyone else, but you could tell us why you don't, then it would actually be contributing to the conversation, rather than just coming across like you're shitting on the OP's comment without reason.
      When Miles meets Peter, they have a conversation about his untied laces - a stylistic but potentially unsafe/impractical choice when being a spiderman.
      When he's truly ready for his leap of faith, he's prepped, got a suit that fits him and is customised so it's practical but still aesthetically him, no longer just a costume of Peter's, and he chooses to tie his laces (in the trainers which he's also spray-painted to match his suit).
      It's another visualisation of him learning from all the spider-peeps he's met, but choosing which of their things to use and how to make them his own.
      That's my view, anyway. Why do you think we're over-thinking/wrong about it?
      Why would they include it in the script and the animation otherwise? No accidents in animation - it's not just that someone in costume dept missed a memo and tied the laces for that scene and it was missed/left in. The animators had to purposely draw it in to the film. Don't you think they'd consider when/IF he might start tying them?

Unless we have a direct quote from the creators, realistically, we'll never know their intent. It's fun to discuss, speculate, and engage with the content though. It's exactly what Cinema Therapy does.

    23:46 way I see it, is that this shot hits hard because not only did he take his literal leap of faith (note how he broke the glass as he was not relaxed like Peter B Parker told him to be, therefore he wasn't ready for the leap) and is therefore falling, but he in falling he is rising to meet his destiny of being the next Spider-Man.
