I spent today working on Ariel’s Harpy dance! Some of it was quite nice, some of it looks a bit awkward, but the puppet did surprisingly well. She was good at the challenging Kabuki backwards bends and she held on to the feathers tightly! Unfortunately however today was the first serious puppet injury and her right hand came off completely. Thank heavens for the long kimono sleeves and some masking tape. Poor Ariel!
I’m reworking some parts in the middle before I begin the animatic later today. I’m really looking forward to getting some feedback on Monday, I think it will be really helpful at this point. I’ve chosen a three pieces of music I’d like to try on the animatic, to see which works best.
