This of course was a great opportunity to design and build something special and from the outset the puppets were to be fully functional and shot in camera with minimal post production.
The design process in collaboration with Painting Practice and Evolution VFX was long and engrossing culminating in finished designs being ready for 3d printing in Dec 2012.
The build was managed by Richard Van Den Burg at Evolution who brought together a crack team of model makers and engineers who also operated the puppets throughout rehearsals and shoot.
