Glen's presentation will cover some of the technical challenges experienced during the puppet making process for the Oscar winning Pinocchio by Guillermo Del Toros. As a technical sculptor at Mackinnon and Saunders Glen's role was to handle the digital sculpting challenges that arose from trying to marry the world of clay sculpting, CAD accuracy, digital sculpting with ZBrush, colour 3D printing and of course printing entire armatures in metal. Glen will share some of the projects that led them to be able to confidently tackle a groundbreaking project like Pinocchio and also where they needed to push the boundaries of the technology to get the desired result.
