Awesome team you two, Simon and you working on interesting shots. Pretty impressive the quality of work that can be achieved with awesome equipment and fair amount of well-equipped energies to let you animate within a month or more. Intense!

Thumbs up for Simon's motion control, multiple passes calls for some accuracy and slag elimination. Good work there Simon !!

Thank you!
Initially we had about 3 - 3.5 months to get it done and were quite close on schedule to make that work, but quite late into the process there were quite big requests of changes to be made to the story and animation. So after that there was a more slowed down period of 4-5 months over which the rest was completed.
But most of the puppet and set build was completed over the first month and a bit.
Definitely an intense few months though! The motion control rig worked very well. We were using an earlier model built by Simon but we were able to do multiple passes for rig removal and combining light exposures, etc.

Wonder how it went with the motion control, the result is great.

How long did it take to build and animate, the sets are pretty elaborate, and the lights as well. Can't have been that easy to make. Good job!!
