FACE PUPPETRY FOR VFX
When a character in a shot is completely CG and too oversized or complex for an actor to act as, using face puppetry is a helpful tool for VFX reference and gives cast members something better than a blue suit or tennis ball to interact with.
All puppetry heads/faces are custom-made to the size requested, with the capabilities of a moving jaw and eyelids.
Our puppetry rigs are designed to work in combination with some of our other creature rigs to make up a creature skeleton. Below is an example of creating
a Dinosaur physical reference, using our Puppet Heads, Monster Legs and our latest Creature Stunt Tail, which is made out of foam for stunt combat purposes.
