Ray Bradbury's The Groon: Speed Sculpt

Christopher Moonlight Making Of Ray Bradbury Groon from Christopher (Moonlight) Cooksey on Vimeo.

For Live Forever: The Ray Bradbury Odyssey ( I had to show Ray's childhood monster, The Groon, which he used to imagine seeing at the top of the stairs, late at night. The solution was to build a rod puppet, which was then shot against a green screen, and added to footage of a staircase, shot by Scott Smith ( under the direction of Micheal O'Kelly. O'Kelly and smith were also responsible for videoing child actor Zachary Meade ( against a green screen for me to composite with the other footage for the final moment in the film. 
Watch until the end for a special comment from Malcolm McDowell.
