This character is made with a 2d animation technique which is breafly described bellow:
First a dancer (Sasa Koytsoydaki) performed a choreography according to the script of the film.
The choreography analyzed frame by frame and some frame- sequences were chosen in order a new choreography to be composed.
Finally, after several animation tests, the chosen new frames painted by hand using mixed techniques in order to determine the visual style of the womman-apparition and to test it with the 3d characters made in Blender 3D
