We worked teamed up with Pete Ellmore to shoot this promo for Bone Tooth and Claw’s fine cast animal skulls.

Our brief was to capture the fine detail and beauty of these cast bronze skills to promote Bone Tooth and Claw online and social media.

The skulls were rigged to our motion control equipment and the movement was programmed into our stop motion software – Dragonframe.

This setup allowed incredibly fine movements when capturing the skulls uing stop motion and go motion for motion blur.

A custom bellow lens was used to capture the skulls in extreme close-ups and allowed for experimental, angled depth of field photography.

Shot with a Canon 5D in RAW format, with post-prodution handled in Davinci Resolve for rig removal and colour grading.

In addition to the main edit, we created loopable edit suitable for homepage use with no sound.
