About this gig
I learned a lot on this project, because I got to work alongside the amazing puppet artist,Mike Wick. He made all the really cool puppets on the spot, and was, as always, a blast to work with. Somewhere I used to have pictures of Mike dancing with the monster puppets but I can’t find them now.
These puppets were made of foam over whatever structure they required in order to fulfill their performance requirements, then sprayed with 3M Spray 74 Foam Fast, which was then scored and sculpted to create skin, then coated with liquid latex rubber and painted.
- I also got to puppeteer on the spot, and the big monster shadow at the beginning is me too.
