Branching Out ::

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Ready for something totally new from the Fictory?? The studio is in production on their very first puppet based productin!  Better’n Recess front man Hoagy Wing contacted the Fictory to help create a video concept for their song ‘Pi is a Transcendental Number.’  You might know Hoagy as a long time member of the band Slo Mo, a Philly favorite.  This side project of his is semi-education and 100% awesome!

As the song explores the mathematical concept of Pi, muppet style puppets will journey through the trippy, circular themed set.  Construction has already begun on the scenery, which consists of several experimental moving parts.  Fictory animators and artist are busy creating the puppets.   This is the Fictory’s first chance to work with puppetry as a medium, and an exciting challenge for the studio!

Our sneak preview this week is a few early design sketches of the moving set.  Check them out and get excited for this musing, mystical music video…

Comment on this post and be entered to win a sweet prize next week!
