Here, here are the Wild Things

December 3, 2009

I found this down an alley the other day, how could I go past it without photographing it? . I’m so excited to get the book! I’ve ordered it tonight. The experience of helping make this film, of being on set and being behind the scenes, was truly one of the highlights of my career […]

Other People’s Shoes

June 16, 2009

It’s funny. Although I love working on films for the magic of it (see this post for a little more about that) it’s a job and I’m sort of used to it. You turn up to a location, move all the original furniture and decorations out or around, move in the movie bits and decorations […]

Updated photo

June 15, 2009

It’s not finished, so that’s why there’s a couple of ends hanging off it still, but I’m impressed on how big it’s getting, so I figured I’d share it with you. I’ve run out of wool (again) so I’m waiting until I can get back to the store. I’ve lost count how many balls are […]

Tutorial – Real Hands for puppets and puppet suits

April 7, 2009

This is a really simple tute, which as you know, is always my favourite kind. When you’re building a puppet and you need it to be able to actually use it’s hands, then one way to do it is to create what is referred to as “real hands”, which is basically a big glove attached […]

Phew! What a lot of things to cram into such a short time

April 7, 2009

Oh, there has been much art, much business and a internet connection MIA. Damn technology! On the weekend, I worked on a short shoot of a showreel of a film written by local guys. Well, Jude and a friend of his. It was great to work on a professional shoot but stacked full of mates. […]

electrical faults aside, we got a family going on!

April 2, 2009

Yesterday I spent in the studio still working on the dragons. I bought a glue gun a week ago from a high end craft store that shall remain nameless as my previous glue gun, bought sensibly from a hardware store, had been suddenly called to Majorca to attend a family situation. Or at least, that’s […]
