The puppet cast of this film is not without its challenges. I chose this scale because I knew I was going to need to produce some fairly subtle animation. The bigger the puppet the easier it is to do that but it comes at a price. The puppets are heavier which means some of the joints; mainly the ankles, knees and hips need to be very tight in order to hold the puppets weight which makes things like walking much more difficult. I knew that would be the case having dealt with 2 large puppets on FILTH. The difference is the whole cast is at that scale this time around. Each film has its own set of challenges and hopefully you can take what you learn, make some sort of educated guess and apply it to the next one.
