Animation Magazine Visits Team Smithereen


On Thursday the Team Smithereen crew welcomed a visitor from Animation Magazine. It might seem unusual for Animation Magazine to be interested in a puppet show, but Team Smithereen actually utilizes an innovative mix of latex puppets, digital green screen compositing, and computer animation.

Director and Team Smithereen creator Dan Clark gave him a full tour of the Team Smithereen house. He got to see first hand how the latex puppets were built, and fabricated, then he visited props and editorial, finally he toured the green screen stage to see the stunt puppets in action.

After the tour the whole Team Smithereen crew gathered outside for a round table interview. Animation Magazine is a super cool publication, and the interview was a blast. Look for the Team Smithereen article in the February issue of Animation Magazine.
