“Panda Bear It” director Evan Kidd speaks with actress Melissa Cowan Rattray who plays the role of Panda in the film. Evan talks with Melissa about bringing the character of Panda to life, despite wearing a full costume, mask, and suit. Physical comedy, large gestures, and more were pivotal for Melissa to add dimension to a character where you cannot see their face due to wearing a literal panda bear mascot costume. Welcome to season two of Convincing Creatives. Each episode features director/writer Evan Kidd speaking with a different person involved in the making of his latest feature film Panda Bear It. We hope to showcase the many talented individuals here in North Carolina who made this indie feature film possible.
