Needing a breaking from armature making, (and constantly sticking my fingers together) I decided to paint the main background for my set.

A few production tests


Budget breakdown 

Production schedule 


Storyboard for my 3rd year short film.
I've tried to draw up a very simple storyboard, as it is a simple story about a couple who get ripped off. I believe the humour in the storyline will come across in the puppets, the way they'll be made and their movement in the animation, as well as the music.
It'll be a very visual project, as I plan to make everything myself to the highest standard that I can. So stay tuned for the building process because that's when the story will really start to take life,

Rich Couple

The two customers who get ripped off in this short story are a very simple wealthy couple. 
The man will wear a fairly plain suit and tie, but no hat. 
His tie with match the colour of his wife dress. 


The Policeman character appears for the shortest amount of time in comparison to the other characters. 

My chosen police officers uniform is fairly simple and based on one of the early police uniforms, with a button up knee length coat, belt, tall hat and baton.

Main male character

My main male character, the shop owner and crook. 
Strongly influenced by Sasha Baron Cohen, both his characters in Tim Burtons Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and his character is Les Miserables
He will be exceptionally tall, much taller than all the other characters.
