“Bird, Mouse, Sausage”

Pre-production and character development efforts for an animated short based on a Grimm fairy tale.

Concept: “The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage” is based on a Grimm tale of a trio of characters who live together and meet an unfortunate demise. The project began as a 3D marionette show and evolved into a stage play with full-size puppets inspired by the Lion King from Broadway. Even though it was to be performed as a stage play, it would still be a short 3D animation.

Assets produced with traditional tools, Photoshop, Silo, and Maya.
Original models except for the “base actors” who were modified meshes.
