What started out as a simple idea quickly turned into the single most colossal project we had ever taken so far.  Many of the shots were scaled up and up during the original draft and for the majority we had absolutely no idea how to achieve the look we wanted, it was only through completing the first half of the animation that we realised how to achieve what we didn't think was possible.
