Wildlife on Mars: Martian Rex puppet performance tests

This video consists of test i did of my build-up puppet for a Ray Harryhausen storyboard contest i won in March 2012, Ray has seen the puppet and looks forward to seeing the full 3-4 minute animation.

The puppet is wire armatured, with plastazote core parts and fimo head, it uses tie-down to secure its feet (seen better when the set goes from a green screen background to a black surface), the tests were shot over 4 days and the puppet stands at around 17" tall

Great to see him moving, looking absolutely great! Looking very very promising for the final film...
