For those of us unfamiliar with the processes involved with creating a stop motion animation, behind even the shortest of film clips lies a lot of hard work.
The puppets of Pablo, Adora and their feathered friends came from less-than-glamorous beginnings.These were created and moulded from latex, and once they were set René then sculpted finer features as required. Pablo and Adora then had their fur applied and costumes fitted by René, and the birds were given their gorgeous plumage.
The puppets, costumes and set were all handcrafted by René – if that’s not a labour of love we don’t know what is!
We’ve put together a just few photos René took while she was getting ready for the Dacryphilia film shoot – more photos to come. Enjoy!
