Farmers family

These puppets I made for an animation commission for a Dutch medieval history animation aimed at primary school children.
A family of three plus their two cows. The puppets were made with aluminium wire armatures in a small scale with lightweight materials. Because for the film the landscape of the miniature sets was very important to tell the story, the puppets had to be shrunk down to minimize space and costs of the set-build. The finished animation can be watched here.

See the gallery below for more info and pictures of the fabrication process.
