For her role as Maurice, Karin spent time with two old male orangutans at the Los Angeles Zoo, and another named Towan at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. She learned to walk and run on the prosthetic arm stilts in a local park at dawn when there were few people around. Karin also wore 10 pound weights on each arm during sequences to sell the weight of her character in the performance capture.[1] Konoval confirmed that Maurice was based on "fiesty" Bruno, on Towan's "heart and soul" and on Clyde the walking orangutan.[2]
