The serfs required even less time and work than the wedding guests. For the actual animation, at least. More sprites had to be organized, rescaled and cropped in Photoshop before being implemented but not as much work was necessary in order to animate them. The scene consisted of three serfs working a huge bellow for Ilmarinen’s smithy. They only needed one animation: The serfs had to hold a rod for the bellow, going up and down with it. This animation was converted into four animations: One animation for raising the rod, one for waiting at the top, one for lowering the rod and one for waiting at the bottom.
