Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share the trailer for the film that Ive spent the last 2 years slaving over. Its silicone puppet animation and I made the puppets, built a lot of the sets and animated on it. I also had the wonderful help of Nick Hilligoss in the animation department who was an absolute joy to work with and I thank my lucky stars that he wanted to be involved:)

Novielo,

It was really hard to stay focussed. I just had to take things day by day and tick off the huge lists of things to make/do one by one.

2 years!!! Wow, how do you keep focus for such a long time?

The trailer is great by the way.

Looks wonderful, those puppets look so detailed. The story seems very intriguing too.

wow, nice job!

Fantastic work Isabel!!! What strikes me the most is that you have your very own visual style, in puppets, sets, and storytelling.  Even if I've seen only the trailer, it is so clear that it's a very personal piece and this makes it come across as very powerfull!!! SUPER!!!!

Stunning work Isabel! from puppets to prod. design... The entire thing looks juicy!

Cannot wait to get to see the whole thing.

Looks awesome and scary!

Please update us on how it will be released, because I would love to see it.  Looks great

Thanks Matt,

Thanks Darius,

The puppets were a pretty serious amount of work. I think each one took around a month to make!
