Dinosaur Puppet Project

The single-manned Dinosaur currently under construction is created from light weight & possess extensive articulation through the head and the torso. Features currently under construction include visual ventilation and a fully articulated neck. The skin surfaces will showcase highly detailed textures and the entire structure will be counterbalanced by a three meter tail.

The mouth of the dinosaur will be mechanically controlled along with the breathing apparatus that will create animation and interactivity through blowing air through its nostrils.

This project is a prototype piece, combining mould making, construction, welding, prosthetic construction and animatronics.

This project is set to be completed mid to late 2014.
