Shoot this bird!
Here you see one of Animal Makers' most active, animated birds. Bird of the beach can easily talk, look around, and hop about. Slightly Oversized sandpiper stands 14' tall.
Animations is radio controlled. Head moves up \ down, side \ side, neck moves left \ right, forward backwards, knees bend. Although the video reveals some feather work needed, we generally wait for our clients to tell us the look they are going for, then adjusting the puppet to more closely resemble that vision.
Animated using electric servos controlled by either programming blocks or radio controllers.
The puppet was mounted on it's stand while being performed. A second puppeteer usually takes the bird by it's tail using a specially mounted puppetry rod. Then the entire body is moveable adding to the look.
