A little background information...

This was a little passion project, created by freelance artists in between their other work. The character of Fangus is something that Judith had been thinking about for a while but it was only recently that she had the time to put him into production. Initially this was supposed to be a short animated sequence to showcase Judith’s models, but once the animation was complete and the music and sound added to it we all felt that we’d created something special and hopefully there’ll be some more animations of Fangus’ adventures in the future!

How was the film was made?

Fangus is a stop frame animation. The puppet (including the various heads needed for the transformation) were sculpted and cast in silicone.
