In Ghostbusters, Dr. Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) didn’t keep his mind clear. What popped in his head was a fun and harmless character from his childhood. In seconds, we see Mr. Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (video) walking the streets of New York City.
Creating the scene made the Director, Ivan Reitman nervous because it could have been silly. Instead, it became an excellent and comical finale of a marshmallow man wreaking havoc on the city in King Kong style. In CineFix’s, Art of the Scene series, they cover the behind the scenes in eight minutes. They discuss the brainstorming and ideas for Stay Puft, how the team created gooey scene and more.
