I’ve been strapped to my desks today collating research, bashing out concept art, planning puppets etc ready for a pre-vis presentation at uni. I will post some of this soon.
The equation for the studio set-up works something like this:
Paint & drawing/scanner/computer

The 2d paint on glass sections will be animated separately and later composited over the stop-motion footage using a programme called After Effects. These overlay animations serve to enhance the storytelling through thought-bubbles and diagrams. The puppet will have a relatively painterly face and the props, sets and backgrounds will have an impressionistic, illustrational aesthetic to them. I have been looking at various painters and approaches as well as researching scenic art.
