OOglies is a BAFTA award winning children’s stop motion animated sketch show for CBBC. I was an animator on the original series for BBC Scotland in 2009 and recently worked on the new Funsize series created by Ko Lik Films. As well as animating I also worked in the art department on this series, helping to create some of the characters and props.

These are some of the props I created with stills from the finished program.

The Celery character (body only) – I created the plaster mould, armature and cast the silicone body.

The Ninja Sushi character – Sculpted the character based on the production designer’s sketch, made a plaster mould and cast it in silicone.

The Egg characters – Sculpted from light air dry Fimo clay with K&S rigging points at the back and painted.
