There was a lot of compromising when it came to filming my animation; an over-ambitious storyboard pitted against a mix of the restraints of the medium and my own lack of experience. Once the actual animating began though, I feel it went relatively smoothly.
A selection of “behind the scenes” photographs illustrating the puppets on stage and the lighting and camera set up. I found this animation a little tricky to light well because everything is so dark and almost monochromatic. Fortunately the brief calls for a dark and atmospheric tone and whilst I would have liked a little more control over it, I believe I was able to light the animation correctly and it led to an atmospheric final piece.
