Pupper Fab Test


I wanted to do a quick test to get closer to what I think the final look of the film will be for myself. Anyway, it was a good opportunity to see if my idea can be appealing or not. I see a couple of things I want to go back and fix with the actual puppet, but I want to finish the rest of them before I go ahead and fix a puppet. Gotta make MORE!!

Ah, nothing quite like your good ol' ominous family portrait.
But wait, what is this? Is William finished? (for the most part)

His head has been baked several times. I had to do some repairs when the sculpey crumbled in the back of his head with some magic sculpt. I learned the valuable and time saving thing that is baking magic sculpt. What would usually take around 24 hours to harden to the point of "rock", baking it gets it rock hard in about 20 minutes or so. I'm sure there's a waiting period to let it settle, but anyway... SUCCESS!!

He has an open chest cavity because of an effect in the film that will call for a lack of chest. But for now, I no tell you nothin'.

More of his head


There's something insanely disturbing about cooking them puppet heads.

Just another update

I've bene fixing up the puppets hands, and I gave Mary some.. uh.. breast-like appendages.

This is probably one of the only times you'll see a santa outta me.


Looks like a little mummy to me.

Aw, mother and son.

Lonely little boy.

Thesis Presentation

Earlier this month I had a thesis presentation for my film. I made a packet, so I thought why not post some of the supplementals? Also, there is a finished animatic! I'm a little on the fence if I should post it online or not, but it would probably be a good idea to. Hell, maybe if I just do it here, I don't' have to post it on youtube.

I'm sending my laptop off to get its screen fixed today! This is huge for a number of reasons, but it means I will once again have the means to document the puppet making process. And OOHHH, you can bet that'll be exciting. I'm excited, aren't you?
