Music video update

So we've been really busy casting puppets and doing some animation tests. I uploaded a video of the tests in question, just so you could see how things have been coming along. The first clip is of the stripped down armature in a walk cycle. The next one is a flight test with the crow puppet (which we made out of foam latex and wire).

We made duplicates of the old man puppet, one with a wire armature and one with a Skeletoon ball and socket armature. The one with the wire is for close-ups (mostly because it came out better than the other).
In all, I think we've made about six models. This is one big project!
