Making of HBO's Feature Presentation - Morning Watch

The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

In this edition, Coco star Anthony Gonzalez gives a live performance of one of the best songs in the Pixar Animation movie. Plus, watch how HBO created the newest animated opening for their Feature Presentation bumper, and see a scene from The Florida Project broken down by the film’s director.

First up, Coco voice star Anthony Gozzalez stoped by Good Mythical Morning to serenade the hosts with a rendition of “Un Poco Loco,” the song his character Miguel performs with Hector for the crowds in the land of the dead. Plus, Gonzalez also handed out some cocoa during his appearance, because that’s the name of the movie (kind of).

 

Next up, see how HBO teamed up with the visual effects company Imaginary Forces to create their intricate new Feature Presentation bumper that plays before the premiere of new movies arriving on the cable channel. The lengths to which they went to create this little animated sequence is rather impressive.

Finally, director Sean Baker breaks down a key scene from his acclaimed indie drama The Florida Project. This particular scene features Willem Dafoe, who was nominated for an Oscar for his role in the movie, even though the film ended up getting snubbed in a number of other categories.
