taking one frame at a time since 1999

Howdy folks, I wanted to share some bits from a little Krampus PSA short that I am working on.  I made my Krampus puppet last year but didn't have the time to animate him.  I'm glad that I waited though, because the idea for the "public service announcement" didn't gel until a few nights ago.  So now I am plugging away, hoping to finish by next weekend.  Here is my pup, along with an image of what a homeless elf looks like :)  Happy holidays!

Great Krampus puppet. Funny, never heard of Krampus until a couple of weeks ago when I saw a bunch of images, and it is exactly the sort of European folklore i've always been interested in. Glad to hear the idea has come to you, good luck with the shoot!

Thank you, Nick!  Yup, you and I seem to draw inspiration from the same subject matter -- I see your Baba Yaga and raise you one Jenny Greenteeth :)

I fear he will be visiting me this year. Nice work.

Well, Krampus did not happen like I wanted it too, but when does stopmo ever?  I have been battling a cold since before Christmas, but now I am getting back in the game!  Here is a little puppet that I have added to the short, the "naughty child", for a very quick little cut away shot.  Wire armature, air dry clay head/eyes/mittens.  She will be equipped with a tiny switchblade :)


Thanks!  (Did he visit?  Drag you to Hell? ;)
