2D Animation & Animatronic Puppet
HD video on Vine:
Traditional animation over live-action will rise again!
For the initial project test, I modeled and printed a servo arm with a gear ratio of 4:1 to quadruple the arm's pitiful throw. I mean I still modded the servo itself but I wasn't sure how far to take it. I don't smoke so I rolled up a piece of paper and burned it to make a cigarette. When I begin shooting in HD I may need to scower the streets for a butt because this little otter gets a close-up.
In building this chopstick rig I soon discovered I needed some odd parts, which should be arriving near the end of the month. Mark ii is slated to be a multiple axis rig with a waldo control system.. but that's later. Chopstick puppet for now.
Completely Space Jam and Who Framed Roger Rabbit inspired.
