Here's the setup for the projection test.
During which, I did an animation test and a matte test. Both turned out very useful for the projection test, especially the way the boy's puppet was constructed. It moves in a very different way than I had expected it to. Damn rebels never listen to their parents.
Here's where I am now with the puppets. The boy is more or less done, I just need to close up the bottom of the pants. Yeah, completely different than in the sketches; as I was building him, I fell in love with the yellow monochrome that the foam and latex were tinted, as well as the way the head looked just as it is. All I need to do with the cat is paint the feet and glue on the fur.
Set mock-up shots coming soon! Reality not included.
