Children of the Forest

Stop Motion. 2021. 2min.

Two celestial children playing hide and seek in a magical forest.

This short was set in a 5’ x 7’ forest base with foam and plaster  trees and surrounding foliage. To create compelling character essence, celestial puppet heads were casted from silicone with embedded LED lighting, creating a uniform and warm glow to match their playful nature. Wire arms were chosen to provide a more childlike preformance while a ball and socket armature was used elsewhere for strength.
