Johnny Kelly: “Somehow, I get to play with puppets for a living, and this particular puppet was especially fun to play with. Assembled from the kind of cables you find in every drawer, in every home around the globe — Monster is a sort of big-tech Mr. Messy.

Nexus director Johnny Kelly melds stop-motion, 2D/3D animation, and the talents of UK puppetmaster Andy Gent into a message advocating conscious consumption for renewed devices marketplace Back Market.
“Behind the juggling phones and belching phablets however, is a slightly less silly message about our obsession with the new, and the havoc our over-consumption is wreaking on the world.”

The production crew hand-built 20+ puppets, including three versions of the Monster, and used photogrammetry to capture the sets, puppets, and props to help with previsualization and develop a more dynamic turnaround for compositing – enabling the animation team to quickly visualize in a 3D space how the 2D animation will track onto the real-life puppet’s face.
