Fox puppet

This fox puppet I made for a 1 minute film that was a student project at the Bristol School of Animation.
The film was a collaboration between me and Laura Tofarides, where I built the puppets, she built the sets and we both animated.

The fox puppet has a simple wire armature inside and the outside was made using needle felting techniques as well as various other materials including foam, latex , polymorph and super sculpey.
The puppet is very light and the feet have pin tie downs that pin through a foam surface in the set.

See the image gallery below for more pictures and details about the fabrication process.
