Factory Dogs are going through a bit of a makeover. As I am now in pre-production for the full film I need to look at the big picture... Its going to take at least a year of filming to produce the film and the puppets used for the trailer will not last. Also with the film being shot in 3D I want everything to have a nice shine to it.
Pictures will come soon!!!
I was very grateful to be invited to Chapman Entertainment to view their studio and show the guys "Factory Dogs - Teaser Trailer" I received some great feedback from them all and also a lot of tips and advice on things to look at for the full film.
I got to see last weeks rushes of their new pre-school animation series "Rah Rah the noisy Lion" The characters are a lively bunch and the animation is second to none.
The visit was a great success and I thank Chapman for their hospitality
Next for Factory Dogs...
I am making up a new Frederick that will be more agile and last for a full shoot. Expect pictures very soon. Also I will do some extensive 3D tests with him to check my calculations are correct. All very exciting and plenty more to come.
That's all for now, keep checking my posts for more updates

It was a fun shot to shoot as I had to change focus from Dermot in the foreground to Big Dean in the background. As you can see the wall was a print photographed at a carpet factory. Quite fitting as my production is "Factory Dogs"

This is purely to get the characters out there and make people aware that there is a new stop motion film on its way.
Last week I managed to film 5 shots of the trailer. There are 22 shots in all so I have a way to go yet.
This is the animatic for one of the shots I have filmed. It's 2 seconds long and required a lot of dialogue to work out and animate.
The shot is a replica from a scene in Reservoir Dogs. I am making
a comedy reference to the film.
The dogs are arguing about what colour they are being named.
Below is the finished shot animated with dialogue.
I act out the shot before animating it so I can use it as a reference. Below you will see me acting out the video reference for Bernards walk and next to it, the animated video of the same shot.
More pictures and videos will be coming quick and fast so keep checking back to this blog
