James Gunn’s brother, Sean Gunn, did a heckuva lot of stuff on “Guardians Of The Galaxy.” One was a character called Kraglin, pictured here. Kraglin is the First Mate of Yondu, being played by Michael Rooker.
Sean Gunn played Kraglin and the on-set Rocket Raccoon, making him have the second-most days of any actor in the film. The first was Chris Pratt.
Ah yes, another video of me doing the motion reference work for #BabyGroot. Believe it or not, I actually did three different versions of this dance at three different times. The first time was when I first wrote the scene, in my office st home, recorded by @simonlikes on his iPhone. That one was mostly so that I could remember the camera angles and camera movements I had in my head while writing than it did the actual dance. The second time was on set in Atlanta with a single camera and our visual effects team. That time it was doing the dance full out - there were some bits and pieces we used - but because Groot is moving and the camera was stable I was only able to travel for very short periods. And so we did it again, this time in Los Angeles, with many cameras lined down a long space so that I could actually do all the long walks and jumps Groot was doing. That’s when this is from. For those of you who’ve asked, bits of the dance were ideas of things I had in my head, or things designed for the already planned camera movies, but most of it was free form made up on the spot. The other question I’ve gotten asked a lot is whether or not I was just doing my regular dancing or was it in character. The answer is of course in character - I think you can see clearly in this video I’m trying to move my body that works for a little tree more than what I’d be dancing like in a nightclub in L.A. This is of course all courtesy of the visual effects company @framestore who turned this stuff into something magical, creating one of the most impressive single shots ever. #GuardiansoftheGalaxyVol2 is still out in theaters so go see it again this weekend! #gotgvol2 #GotGPicoftheDay #fbf #flashbackfriday #friday #instagood #filmmaking #movie #movies #dancing #love (at Los Angeles, California)
jamesgunn#gotgpicoftheday Ronan takes the Milano for a spin. So many of us on the cast and crew were like kids around the giant toys on set. Lee Pace, who plays Ronan, wanted his photo in Peter Quill’s ship and I happily obliged.
I’ve been so late with the #gotgpicoftheday-s it’s ridiculous. So I’ve compiled many into one post for your viewing pleasure!
1: James Gunn always brought his dog Von Spears on set. And look at how damn happy that dog is.
2. An early photo showing Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista working on a scene with James Gunn.
3. An assortment of illegal weapons made for the Kyln prisoners!
4. James Gunn chilling with Yondu (Michael Rooker) and other Ravagers behind the scenes.
5. James Gunn on set with Karen Gillan as Nebula. I’m in love with Nebula.
Because #GuardiansoftheGalaxyVol2 passed $800 million globally here’s a clip of me dancing that the marvelous @framestore used as reference for the #BabyGroot dance. Go see the movie again this weekend!! #gotgvol2 #GotGPicoftheDay #behindthescenes #movies #filmmaking #instagood #marvel (at Los Angeles, California)
In the early days of rehearsals - before Kurt Russell had arrived - we rehearsed one of the scenes where Kurt’s role was minor, and had our Associate Producer @simonlikes play the role. We all found it so funny we kept making him do it again and again. #GotGPicoftheDay #gotg #guardiansofthegalaxy #movie #movies #acting #rehearsal #film #directing with @prattprattpratt @zoesaldana @karengillanofficial (at Atlanta, Georgia)
