Just for fun, doing this Triclops for a monster film festival trailer. 3 eyes, 3 horns. Also had to make a few basic buildup 1:24 puppets for him to chomp on. A couple will be modified to match live people who have also been shot greenscreen, yelling and waving arms about a lot.

I think I'll be able to link to the trailer on the festival website in a month's time, or post my own edit of the Triclops scenes.  Alex Machin has made and animated a giant Mantis - we are working on a monster fight as well as assorted people munching shots.

Last year's trailer was made by Isabel Peppard, who I worked for on the stopmotion film Butterflies - but no animation in that one.

Here he is full length with a temporary background - a miniature island set is being made for the backgrounds by another artist.
