Aardman work experience - thinking scientist 2nd version

I had the chance to animate this lovely puppet from the Aardman feature film 'Pirates! in adventure with scientists' during my three week work experience at Aardman studio. He is one of the scientist characters.

Great stuff! Lovely subtlety of movement. And obviously brilliant puppet.

Thanks. The puppet was a pleasure to work with indeed. :) Although he was starting to wear, and I had to replace his hands (he still has a tear in one), it was the first time I've animated such smooth working puppet, which was lovely. :)

Hi Roos, I work for Ashton Kutcher's YouTube channel, ThrashLab, and am helping them get the word out about a video competition we're holding. We're looking for videograhers, artists, and editors who want to compete for a $15,000 prize. I saw your work on here, and since Stop Motion Animation is one of our categories, I thought you might be interested in submitting. http://desireecasting.com/The_Ultimate_Video_Search One of only 100 channels created by YouTube and given to Hollywood production companies, celebrities, and media outlets, ThrashLab is focused on bringing serious artists to a mainstream audience. Let me know what you think. I'm happy to answer any questions that you might have. And don't be alarmed that it says that you can't have posted a submission anywhere else on the web - as long as you take down your post before you submit to us, you're still eligible.
