Groove statue

Here he is again! Besides the three commercials, the shop owners had the idea to have a statue to put in their store. To create this I have made three molds. A two-piece silicone mold for the character, a one-piece latex mold with a plaster mother mold for the guitar and the same kind for the statues base. As you can see the color is different than the original model. This I did to match the store's logo color.

Because I wanted to be able to animate the pupils on the original puppet after the mold making, I didn't glue them on. Instead I added some latex eyes onto the cast model.
 Because the original puppet was made out of Plasticine, I used a softer kind (Play Doh, yes, the kid's toy) which doesn't stick to the puppet that easily.
 The first part finished. As you can see the surface of the mold is rough on several spots. This is because this kind of plasticine is more difficult to smooth out.

 The guitar mold. I removed the head of the guitar, because it is in angle onto the neck. This would otherwise require a two-piece mold. The iron strings were added later.

More musical commercials coming up

I'm currently working on two more commercials for Groove Music Shop. The first one featuring a drumkit is finished. Right now I'm doing the last bits of preparation for the second one, which will be about a saxophone. Tomorrow it's back to the animation set! I'll put links to the commercials here as soon as they appear online.

Hi again! Here's the commercial for Groove Music Shop I've been working on last month:

This is the first out of a series of three commercials. The next two will be finished in the Summer season.

Groove commercial stuff!

In the near future I'll post the short commercial I did for Groove Music Shop.
For now, here is already a bit of extra stuff! Some pictures I made during the making of the commercial.

These are the two versions of the guitar, for the biggest part made out of balsa wood.
Almost ready for shooting!
In mid-air! The wires and the strap were very véry annoying :)

Before shooting I made a little test for the explosion of the amplifier. This one is done at 24fp (in the commercial I did it on 12fps). I changed some stuff for the final animation, like the way the piece of wood falls down.

Because I had some issues with the 'flickering' on the images, I will use a brand new flicker-free Nikon lens for the next commercial. Hurray!
