Milk Life video spot: gingerbread man

This holiday video spot was for a Milk Life holiday promo for vine and instagram.

I wanted to create a gingerbread puppet from scratch. Using only armature wire and clay. But due to the crazy short deadline I used a few digital animation techniques.

The background and milk were both shot and animated stop frame style.  The gingerbread puppet is a high res photo of a real gingerbread cookie. Separating out the arms, eyes, mouth, and legs, I created a puppet. I abstracted parts and shapes to create a squash and stretch effect.
