Now we would like to firstly say that this is in no way coming at the cost of our final animated short we are just looking to expand things beyond it a little by thinking about the marketing of the project beyond this short. Star wars has toy light sabres and a million miles of merchandising we would like a couple of little sculptures of our characters... This is something Polydoodles Stitch watched happen last week with his business partner Ross Castle May when he built the Benjamin model from scratch.
The video above shows the 5 day process of the Benjamin character being made in Magi-sculpt clay. While this was being shot Stitch was sitting down and fine tweaking a shot of the animated short but there was a few moments where he watched in awe. In a few weeks he goes back to record the painting of the Benjamin model while Ross makes some little fine tweaks. The video is almost an hour long but its a lot of days rolled in to one speed blast.
