I've been itching to do a quickie little animation shot with one of my Cyclops replica puppets for quite awhile now, so I took a day and a half to set up and bang one out. I'll post the finished clip when the compositing is done in a few days, until then here are a few behind the scenes pics.

I'm sorry, I just couldn't help the temptation to add the 60's film look to your photo with a little Photoshop magic.

Nice Ron! That is one great looking model; I can't wait to see him in action.

LOL!! Yeah but I was going for the remastered technicolor blu-ray look

https://vimeo.com/65680046  I can't believe the timing on this!! RIP Ray!!

Here's a multiplane zoom in of the same shot 

That is FANTASTIC!!!

Thanks so much Ron, I'm gonna have a Harryhausen marathon tonight and celebrate the legend's long and brilliant career!!

Here's the you tube versions for those who prefer that over vimeo

Very nice moment of animation... but to quote Zenobia in the last of the Sinbad films, "Not enough! Not enough!"!!  

Absolutely knock out stunning work!!

Great to see this guy alive! Ray would be proud!

I really enjoyed seeing that - Particularly given the recent sad news. Wonderful work - And, such an authentic reproduction of a classic creature.

That is awesome! Would love to see the video. Terrific model, beautifully crafted. Nice to see Ray's most iconic creation is still inspiring people, and will continue to do so.
