WHAT IF “Agent 327: Operation Barbershop” had a different ending than that epic hairdryer-flamethrower we all know and love?<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VsZuChppBJ8" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>
This question came up several times during the story development process. Agent 327 is cornered and surrounded by menacing thugs, facing the ultimate villain, armed with just a hair dryer and a can of hair spray laying on Boris’s lap. He needs to think fast, he needs to act quickly to get out of there alive. What is he going to to?
Hjalti had a pretty good idea about how things could have gone…
The arrival of a new animator in the team, the fantastic Pablo Fournier, proved to be a perfect moment to turn this vision into reality. After some briefing from Hjalti, Pablo took his first steps with Blender and after a couple of weeks he came up with the final shot.
Additional props to Hjalti for animating the shots leading up to the final moment and to Andy for tweaking the lighting and rendering.
