Week Four and Five

Sorry for the lack of posting last week, but it's been all systems go!
Not just with this money tree project but with a very exciting project I have the privilidge to be working on. It's exciting because I get to work with the legend that is Barry Purves! More about that later ;)
Alex has been very busy with the foam latex Badger puppets, and here is a test animation he has done, as well as so before and after photos of the woodland trees.
ENJOY!

 This is the Badgers mould and the armature inside, ready for the foam latex. Below is what the puppet looks like when you first take it out of the mould, a bit like a flying squirrel badger!


 Here is Tom, to give you an idea of the scale we're working in. Before the paint, looking like greek collumns and after the paint, looking more tree like!

This tree will be used as the Fox's fallen tree, log desk.
















Tom and Jon's foam latex puppets came out wonderful too, minus a few air bubbles, I think they were both great successes. Tom also created a foam board mock up of Barney's front room for us to start visualising the space and scale of the set.
All in all a very productive week, stay tuned for a link to the Barry project animatic I've been working on.
