Autumn Leaves Returns!!

As you may or may not know, I've decided to take a little time off the Music Video so that I can try to complete the remake of my first short Autumn Leaves. I was originally intending on using it for the Stop Motion Magazine Film Festival, but, seeing how the deadline is the 15th of this month, I don't really think I'm going to make it. Oh well . . . . I still may be able to use it for some other festival. But I digress . . . . Here are some pics of the new puppet and if you click HERE you'll get to listen to the song itself (note, the version you'll hear isn't the one i'll be using cuz it's too upbeat).

We made him using the Build Up method; liquid latex, cotton, and foam. He has a wire armature and epoxy bones. And those ARE real twigs sticking out of his back and head.
And I spent an hour and a half painting foil leaves.
