Cut Paper Storyboards

Here are some handmade storyboards I did in cut paper. I am actually going to animate this in flash. I already started, but it's kind of a side, side, side project, haha.

Some outlaw design I am messing with. I may or may not make this into a puppet, maybe a maquette…

Animation Begins Today

I wanted to do a brief update before I start animating my two person lip sync.
A picture of my friend, Sparkles, helping out on the construction of the set.
Some shots of the puppets before the shooting. As you can see, you can barely tell I used newspaper for the clothes.
This shall be interesting...

Clothes for my Puppets!

Here are some more progress shots of my puppets I am building.

Going to paint these babies tonight. Made the clothes out of newspaper… obviously. The puppet on the right has his mouth on, which is made of clay… and I will be sculpting the mouths frame by frame. Eyes, brows and wrinkles, etc will be made from clay, and stylized in an unique manner.
