Moulding & casting research

After working with plasticine on several projects, Katie wanted to work with silicone puppets like they do in the industry. Jen had some knowledge of the materials to use and after researching a bit deeper, found some useful tutorials and blogs online by other modelmakers and animators.

( the above two videos are by )

Ben Whitehouse

And also we stumbled across two brothers called Joshua and Nathan Flynn (or as we call them 'The Flynn Twins') who both studied animation at the University of Glamorgan. They have documented the making process of their current project 'Opening Night'.

University of Glamorgan is also where animator Tim Allen studied! Theres a really good interview with him on The 11 Second Club blog here
