Rocket prop build

Trying to keep things simple. For me, this means cheap and not too much investment in time. I want to focus more on animation for this Jam and not props, sets and puppets.

These rockets are made from materials I found in my workshop scrapbox: PVC pipe (from a plumbing repair), wood dowels, Apoxie Sculpt modeling compound and some cardstock. Paint is rough, but may work for background objects. Build took an afternoon; painting 2-3 hours spread out over several days to allow coats to dry.

  • Rock on! Rockets:-)

  • awesome simple designs.. I like it.. and that was my aim to try stay more focussed on the animation than the puppets and sets, but I seem to have fallen now to the puppet fabrication and set building side.. we'll see what happens... 





    • Best laid plans of mice and men.... I'm also yielding. Animation completed thus far is fairly simplistic - simply moving the rockets through space. Doing more post production than I intended since it is so much quicker than doing everything in camera in one pass.


  • Very smart!
  • Nice speedy job - it works - looks familiar and earthbased
