Stop-Motion Animation

Project: A Strange Encounter

This project was a little more of something I wanted to try for fun. The idea of dragons existing in real life has amazed for years. Animating one even the smallest movement was key for me. One of my big inspirations is Ray Harryhausen, in the 7th Voyage of Sinbad where he made a dragon and animated it beautifully. If possible, one of my goals when it came to making this puppet was to incorporate some of the fantastical aspects of beasts that Ray Harryhausen created, into my films. I love animating for the sole purpose of making the inanimate come to life.
