Elm Road Productions

Many moons ago I worked on a number of T.V. commercials and a few children's episodes for Nickelodeon at the Bristol based Elm Road Productions.
A small team of us created puppets, props and sets for 'Stan and Harvey Do Lunch'. Unfortunately I can't find a link to any of the episodes online.
Here are a few of the replacement heads:

And here's a shot of me sculpting replacement mouths for Jack Nicholson:

Alton Towers 'Ug-Land' ride.
I sculpted this 1 meter long Dinosaur head for the close up shot on the commercial:

Here is the finished commercial. If you look closely, at the final shot you can see that we left a small step-ladder in the left side of the horizon. Oops!:

Alton Towers 'Singing Barn'
For a quick turn around on this commercial we only made the front half of the puppets knowing that there wouldn't be any full shots of the farm animals.

A shot of me sculpting the replacement mouths on the 'goofy' horse:

I made the sheep from 'Super Sculpey' and many, many pipe cleaners!!
Here is the finished commercial:

Faxe Beer commercial.
I made two ufo's from vacuum formed components and the undercarriage doors were edited in post production to give the illusion of them opening and closing.

Here's the Vimeo link to the final commercial directed by Micheal Wright:
