Quick update today! The film's coming along- storyboards are done, and now I'm in the middle of building the puppets and the set. I'll put up some puppet progress soon!

Making a Film!

For the last few weeks, I've been working on my fourth-year film- a stop-motion film!

So far I've been working on the story and designs- I'll be posting some progress on the puppets, sets and animation here as I go. For now, here's a drawing from my initial pitch- I'm excited to show more soon!

Our third year film, Grounded, is online!


It was an awesome experience to get to make this film with such a lovely, hardworking, and talented group of people. The description on Grounded’s vimeo page has links to everybody’s blogs- they all do great work, so go check them out!

Here’s some of the preproduction work I contributed, mainly done in gouache and paper cutouts:

And here’s a compilation of animation that I did for the film:

All of the animation in the video is by me- though many of the backgrounds were painted by other team members (there are paintings by Bronwyn, Khoebe, and Evan- I painted the first one and the close-ups).

Over the winter holiday, before production on the film really got going, I made a puppet version of the little bunny, Louie (designed by Alex and Steve).

It was a good opportunity to try out some new things- Louie’s face has magnetic replacement mouths, and his hands and feet are molded and cast in silicone. He was a fun puppet to make!
