This is the throne room film I have been working on for the last 8 months or so. A King and his knights are in the throne room when creatures attack. All puppets, sets, props and animation are done by John Hankins. Foley work by Don Carlson and musical score by Brett McCoy. Visual effects by Paul McConnochie. Half of the puppets have a wire armature and the other half have a ball and socket armature. I made all the armatures. All puppets are created with the latex build up method in which seat cushion foam is applied to the armature, clipped to shape, then Mold Builder Latex is applied over the foam. All puppets have tiedowns in their feet. The feet have threaded aluminum blocks and a 8-32 screw threads into the foot block from below the set. All props were custom made. The floor is hand-painted in a pattern that helps hides the tie-down holes. The film took about 8 months to complete and is about 6000 frames. Any flying was done with a flying rig that was erased in post production. The exterior shots were actually shot outside at night to minimize light flicker. The set was too big to set up inside. The set remained outside for 7 months under tarp when not shooting.
