Here are some shots of the mountain set in its semi-finished state. Just needs a coat of titanium white to get it looking crispy.
Jon diligently adds snow as a flea begins an impromptu ascent.
The final peak.
We had a great session with Tim Taylor (motion control guru from 'Coraline') on Saturday who taught us all we needed to know to get the camera up and running. We are going to shoot some test footage soon which I may actually cut into a rough version for timing purposes. We are also looking into replacing the current camera with a Nikon D90 with an 18-200 mm lens for a beautiful HD picture.
My next priority is to get the proto-fleas finished so that we can test them - and then I'll be calling for prop-makers once we have their scale nailed down.
