Exit Strategy

Here’s the music video I helped Brook with. She was great fun to animate with and she had the whole thing edited and up on youtube in record breaking time.┬áThe band’s name is We Walk In Straight Lines.

It was so fun to do some more stop motion animation and make another pair of puppets. I learnt tons more about puppets from making these two and I actually think I’d try a different approach for my next stop-motion film. The story developed quite organically. One of the brilliant things about puppet animation is you can develop some action and ideas on set as you are animating straight-ahead. This allows the characters/puppets to develop their own personality a little more. But you do need strong puppets! I was pleased that the armatures didn’t break this time!
