A while back we made a set of stopframe animation props for Blinkink and the Julio Bashmore music video they were creating. The video for the Bristol producer’s single ‘Peppermint’ is available to view online. Among the other animation props made by various techniques, the video includes the hands of our own Andy Wright, which were deemed holy enough to be cast in both Jesmonite and the role of God, where they can be seen clapping out a TR-808 style drumline and giving divine life-energy to a developing golden foetus.
Our propmakers have lent their setbuilding and sculpting skills to range of stopframe animation projects over the years, including hundreds of cast Creme Egg props for Aardman and the Goo Games, and a set of hand-painted Russian dolls for an Eircom television advert.
As well as the sculptural and artworking side of stopframe animation props, we are able to handle the technical aspects as well, with our well equipped workshop allowing us to create intricate metal armatures and jigs. Our other facilities, which can be used as part of larger projects or as discrete services, include a 2440mm by 1520mm CNC machine, our Objet 3D printer, a vacuum casting facility and and digital CAD suite.
