Jack and the beanstalk

A two part TV movie that ended up being really good fun to work, first because it was one of my heroes’ company (Jim Henson’s Creature Shop) because I grew with all the puppets they had on the entrance, and second because the animation director did really pushed the envelope for all of us.

This was my first experience in the UK and it was so good I decided I should stay longer than the originally planned 3 months I was coming for.

At this stage the animation for the sequence I was working was done with XSI version 1.5 and was the very first glipse of a technology yet to mature but clearly outstanding from the point of view of an artist.
