I had my memory jogged earlier today and recalled a time a few years ago when I was lucky enough to get a tour round a local company that makes model for animation. The company are called Mackinnon and Saunders and made the puppets for Mars Attacks and The Corpse Bride amongst others.
During my tour I saw all the stages of the creation of the models, from the plasticine statues (Fantastic Mr Fox) being sculpted to the armatures being built, mouldings etc. I saw them refurbishing puppets for popular kids tv shows (Postmand Pat anyone?)
They did also have some of the old puppets they had made so I saw both Corpse Bride and Mars Attacks puppets close up.
So apart from wanting to brag a little, I also thought that some on here would be fans of the films, but I also wanted to ask a question.
So what halloweeny have you been behind the scenes of - film, tv, prop making, theme parks etc? And if you havent, then what do you wish you could have been be behind the scenes on and why?
