Stoopid Buddy Stop-motion Production Puppets
These are just some of the puppets that I have created for Stoopid Buddy Stoodios' various properties. In most cases, the costumes (if applicable) were made by the Costume Department and the sculpts were either pre-existing or made by Digital, unless noted otherwise.
Selected and screened at The Roseville Animation Festival (2012) and the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival (2012)! This is a short animation made by myself and two other students at DePaul University. We were going for a "paper cutout" look for the style, but it was actually made in Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects and edited in Premiere. Our team was so small, we all had a hand in pretty much everything at one point or another, but we gave ourselves a little credit for the main tasks. Hope you enjoy it!
