The Chicken Squirrel - CG / practical puppet hybrid


A rare sighting of this species in West Sussex, England. They once thrived at Chanctonbury Ring before the great storms of 1987 destroyed much of their habitat. This little guy is hybrid of practical puppetry and CG. He has a latex and foam body with bike cable mechanisms for his legs and jaw. I filmed the puppet in the woods and used motion matching to add CG eyes and the inner mouth. Thanks for the excellent tutorials David Monzingo, Deborah Galvez and BJ Guyer!

    Very cool! Love it's expression. Did you know that if you post the share code straight into the post then the video will appear within the post and not as a link (as opposed to using the post url button, it took me a while to figure that out with my own posts)
    I hope that made sense :)
    Best of luck in the contest!
