I recently got an opportunity to do VFX work on a music video for a local filmmaker (in my area), for the band Superdivorce.
He wanted to do an 80's style video -- complete with animated lightning and a stop-motion monster. We're still doing post work on it, but the finished video will most-likely premiere online sometime this fall.
Here's a few pics of the monster puppet. He's foam latex, with a wire and epoxy armature. I cast him in a three part mold, with an additional mold for the little mantis arms. Credits on this one are as follows: The sculpt was done by my father. I made the mold, ran the foam, trimmed and patched. And we both painted (though, my part in painting was maybe 20%).
