Oh heyyy Michel Gondry.

My roommates and I had the opportunity to meet Michel Gondry at his book signing at the Family Bookstore in Hollywood last night! So happy. While I opted for a more traditional photo, David always brings out the best in people. haha.

In other news, I am learning all about the magical workings of mold making for stop motion puppets. 
I think I'm going to try this for my Batfish puppets. I need a whole school of them for my upcoming film and hopefully it will work!

and now I will crawl back into bed because I still have the flu. Ew. I hope I didn't give it to Michel.

Quick Test

Quick Test from Elizabeth Klein on Vimeo.
While I have been home all week sicky icky, I shot this last week to see how my puppet moves. Unfortunately I found that she has very weak ankles, and if I want to use her for anything I would have to completely rebuild her legs. Oh well, she was fun to make. I based her on a print I've had for a while. I've never known the artist, but who wouldn't love a mushroom with lady legs?

DANCE! from Elizabeth Klein on Vimeo.

A quick test using an old how to boogie book from the 70's.

Let's play catch-up.

Here are some images from things I have been working on for the past year!

I have been busy making puppets lately, and I am still busy making a bunch more.
Mushroom ladylegs:

Olive is loving Calarts. Clearly.

An unfinished deep sea angler fish. Hopefully, after he has some skin, I can make him glow!

Last year was amazing. Lot's of stop motion and new friends.

I worked on a few short pieces over last year, one of which was a short film about Laika, the first dog in space.

My final film of the year, Physis- which I completed in a semester and is all about FUNGUS!

I worked with my friends David and Adrienne on a few short pieces, one if which was Laika, another was this crazy green screen shoot involving a giant lazy susan. We also did a piece written in French by Adrienne! I still don't have a translation...

The End! I am going to try and keep this blog updated with all the good stuff I am working on. Yay stop motion!
