My Hairless Skinny Pig MHGPC’s Lavender was featured on an episode of CBS’s TV show “The Doctors.” It was aired on TV on April 20, 2011. The Title of the show is "". She was presented by Veterinarian Dr. Laurie Hess from Veterinary Center for Birds & Exotics (http://www.avianexoticsvet.com/index.php). Dr. Hess discusses about the benefits of having hairless pets for allergy sufferers and talks about their care. She also talks about ways that exotic animals can benefit their owner’s health.
We were contacted by the G-Force art department as they were in need of mascot cavies for the film and 3 of our guinea pigs were featured in 2009 Disney’s movie G-Force. Our 2 skinny pig carrier sows who are sisters looked just like the lead “Darwin” and they were used as the character of Darwin.
They were filmed and held by the actors. Our Baldwin boar was used for study and modeling for the art department. The Baldwin would be their “fitting model” which is a valuable reference for their artists to help them understand what happens under the hair. Their final character sculptures would be hairless so that the folds and shape of the skin create a realistic lay of the hair. This skinny should not be too lean, and not too rotund with average, pleasing proportion. They originally wanted a skinny pig but realized a Baldwin would be better suited for their needs.
Although they were animated with computer graphics, they would be integrated as real actors in this film. The artist studied their look and behavior. They needed models to study the anatomical structure of a guinea pig. The guinea pigs that they searched for had to match as closely to their current designs. They sent us several pictures and drawings of what they needed which is where our guinea pigs came in. The face shape and hair style was most important for their needs.
We were very excited to have our 3 guinea pigs featured for this film. They were living at "The Culver studios" for 3 months and were cared for by the art department. After that I brought them to the Disney's studio for the pet shop scene in the movie.
Here is the description for the character "Darwin" that they were looking for:
