Info about the video after the break.
I liked this puppet so much that I was a sad to see it go once it was done. So I decided to immortalize it in some sort of video. (This ended up becoming a tradition for us.)
We needed a Zelda and a Ganon... and since it wasn't practical to build those characters just to make the video, we needed some stand-ins. Erma and Floyd stepped in for some deliberately poor casting.
This project ended up being more graphics-intensive than I thought... Despite being shot on a low-res camera, due to our main camera wearing out as we began to shoot.
Some of the effects ended up coming out much better than I expected.
For example, the fairy: it's nothing more than a pincushion with paper wings attached to it. (A bright red pincushion. With printer-paper wings.) Thanks to some digital magic, you would have never known the difference.
Also, in the same scene, Link has some rupees swirling over his head. I ended up quickly making a rupee out of paper, and filming it in front of the green screen. I duplicated it, and changed the colors. Pretty neat.
I hope you've enjoyed it.
