The Magic Boat

From June 2010 through May 2011, I was part of an independent studio here in Chicago called Colorphony Creations.  Here, I was part of a project called The Magic Boat, a children's puppet show.  My role on this webisode series was Animator, Prop Maker, Set Designer, Editor, Foley Artist, and Co-creator.

These puppets were created by me for the introduction of the show.  They are stop-motion puppets ranging from three inches to seven inches in height.  Each puppet is structured with a metal skeleton with working joints.  Their bodies are carved from upholstery foam and dressed with fabric.

These are the hand puppets used in the webisodes.  They are about two to three feet in height.  All are made from upholstery foam and fabric.
