Behind the Scenes of Disney's 'Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story'

By Mariam Sughayer, Disney Interactive
It’s a classic love story. Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl, and they live happily ever after. But that’s where the similarity ends. "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story," our latest original stop-motion animated film, follows that timeless story arc... with a captivating, yet unconventional twist. Especially because the stars of the film look a bit different than your average cast of actors. At three inches tall and made of vinyl, Blank—an unpainted outcast from a colorful, vibrant land—finds himself on a quest that alters his destiny while searching for his lost soulmate, Bow. We recently caught up with Matt Wyatt, creative director, Disney Interactive, to hear about the development process of "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story."
