Ladybug Part 1: A Whole New Look
Funny story about that caterpillar shot we were so excited about? Turns out to be for the wrong film! 🙂 We got so caught up in making our first shot look convincing that we forgot to consider the role realism would have on the film. Waaaaay too serious!
So back to the drawing board to come up with a more playful, hand-made look for the film. A look that would transport us into a different world and play up the magical qualities of stop-motion. The Ladybug shot seemed like the perfect candidate.
The image above is from while we were still playing with new materials to give a more fantastic, almost stained glass look to the set.
These next images show a progression from barebones composition to fully dressed and lit.
