Iím planning on doing a short video, similar in form to my Oldroid vid, which will be a werewolf transformation sequence. Working title at the minute is 'anomaly'.
I want to have a slightly different take on it to the usual Ďman transforms into wolfí idea and so Iíve come up with the idea of the werewolf forming on the inside of the man and then bursting out.
That ideaís certainly been done before, but much less than the more traditional take and Iíve certainly never seen a film/vid with it.
The plan is to make a series of rubber puppets to film the sequence. Itís going to involve an old guy (theyíre more fun to sculpt) who starts convulsing and his body rippling. The camera then pushes inside him to show a werewolf embryo growing within.
I then want to do the classic shot from An American Werewolf in London where the face elongates, however I want mine to keep stretching until the skin tears and the werewolf emerges from beneath, abit like a snake shedding itís skin perhaps.
There're going to be four puppets in total - the old man which will be a 2/3 scale puppet, a werewolf embryo, a 2/3 scale werewolf head and sholders and a 1/6 scale werewolf stop motion animation puppet.
