Just before my internship came to an end I was fortunate enough to be involved in the model-making process of this animated film. After the character’s armatures and bodies had been created by the head model-makers, I created a handful of characters’ clothing using tissue paper and latex, based on some wonderful 2D designs. As well as other secondary characters, I also made the clothing for 2 or 3 of the main characters including a hippy version of the female lead ‘Astrid’ and 2 versions of the male lead ‘Ray’. One version featured a simple armatured jacket which could also be animated if needed.
I also designed and made a couple of props including a 70s-esque reel to reel tape recorder and microphone, a few different cups and mugs for the cafe set and an old-fashioned camera complete with flash. These were all hand-carved from polystyrene foam board and then covered in tissue paper and glue.
The painting of all these props and characters (excluding the camera and flash) were painted by other very talented people.
So overall a big hooray, whooo, and bravo to the many brilliant people who worked on this project! I had an amazing time and felt very lucky to be apart of such a great team.
