  • pointed out a lot of animation techniques that we hadn’t considered yet so far in much detail (squash and stretch, cushioning), consideration needed for when we are animating first hand
  • puppet making skills incredibly helpful to guide us to make our puppets as we did not have a clear idea of how to technically make them
  • decided on wire armature and felting after discussion, would be most time-effective and practical for our project

  • Sarah Haulden had a refreshing very can-do attitude to work and our project!
  • discussing with her helped us to figure out solutions to our problems with scale, drawing simple mockups on paper and testing out scales on both interior and exterior sets
  • realised we could use the same scale puppets, ‘fake’ the scale on the exterior to avoid needing to make two puppets of each to different scales, solved a lot of worries about creating environments to two different scales.
