I hate this… And love it at the same time.

Somebody Kill Me | FIDLAR/Kate Nash
When Eddie takes Roger Rabbit into the back room at the bar where Dolores works to cut apart the hand-cuffs in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the lamp from ceiling is bumped and swinging. Lots of extra work was needed to make the shadows match between the actual room shots and the animation for very little viewer benefit. Today, “Bump the Lamp” is a term used by many Disney employees to refer to going that extra mile on an effect just to make it a little more special, even though most viewers or guests will never notice it.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? was one of the most complex films and no one can convince me otherwise.
