First test shoot for Mr Coconut Kickstarter video

Our first attempts to use green screen to animate Mr Coconut for the video for Kickstarter…
Our intention is to publish the book with a Kickstarter campaign, and all of the Kickstarter campaign’s we have looked at show the project with a video. So we’re going to make one. Neither of us have made a video before, but we borrowed some equipment, and found that learning a new skill was not just fun, but gave us a whole new set of ideas for how to do the illustrations for the book.
Before making the video we’d imagined the illustrations would be a combination of sketches and Photoshop tweaking. But using Catherine’s Mr Coconut puppet for the video it’s become obvious that what we should really do is combine puppetry, props and a bit of Photoshop.
