BEHIND THE SCENES
Two perfectly posed puppets
What the squirrel outside my window sees. Here's how I puppeteered all the bedroom shots.
The view from down under. I have EOS Utility running in Live View on the left and the script to reference on my right. Yes this is horrible for my knees.
A closer look at the phone prop. This velcro attaches to velcro pinned to Freak's hand.
The other side has little battery operated LEDs.
This is a stuffed body shape I made to create the illusion of their bodies actually being in bed rather than under.
A sideways look at the set. These are plywood boards screwed to supports.
Don't look too close. This was the first part of the project I made.
A dramatic reenactment of how I puppeteered The Beast.
Cardboard support for the fake body.

The first prototype puppet I ever made back in Oct.
