4 barber blues
Camilo Carrasco's full song includes Link's inner dialogue about all three barbers. You can hear it on the extended soundtrack. But for the sake of animator Martin Batalla, only the lines about Melvin Cooley were used. Martin animated each frame by hand -- over 450 drawings! The last 100 were completed in one day.
This is only Martin's second animation that does not include stick figures. He suspended work on the first to complete this scene. Martin talks about the process:
Not only the technical part of making this was difficult, but I thought of this scene a lot, and sometimes I couldn't decide if I should draw this or that. For example, Melvin Cooley was going to be actually the bald barber we see in the scene, due to the fact Link says he cuts ALL your hair. But with time, i thought that making Melvin Cooley a bit of a hypocrite would be better. If you look well on Melvin's hair at the start of the scene, it moves. That's because when I placed Melvin on top of the other barber, I couldn't hide a "third eye" Melvin now had!
