stay puft marshmallow man

The first thing many people remember when thinking of Ghostbusters is the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. It’s just the simple truth of the matter. The logo is iconic, the characters are memorable, but that final scene featuring a building-sized villain (one made of marshmallow, to boot) is unlike anything moviegoers had seen when the film was released. Since then, there have been few moments as ballsy and out of the box in a major blockbuster, which is why it’s so unforgettable.

So what went into both the creation of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man scene, and the execution of each shot? Find out in a new video in the Art of the Scene by CineFix. It’s pretty great.
