modern style, something I would really love to do more of in my own work, although I try as often as I can. Max Winston also use to work for the company, which accounts for the similarity in there style. This company isn't afraid to use anything to create the right look or texture, they often use flocking and glitter in there work to achieve the retro look. They also let the materials speak for them selves, for example in the stop-frame special they created for sponge bob, they made him out actual sponge rather than creating a mould and casting in coma latex like some studio might. There use of thin tubular limbs and hose pipe lips are something I will be utilising in my own film.
They often use 3D printing to create hollow bodys for there large character as well as more detailed shapes for replication such as the hats ears and faces ( as seen in the image below). From what I can see they also use foam and wire to create the majority of the puppets. this combination of texture and materials is something I hope to bring into my own work rather than worrying with moulds and fussy ball jointed armatures as it is simply unnecessary.
This is a space for development work of my grad film BORIS-NORIS. A slap stick stop-motion film about NOT sharing.
