My project is a stop motion puppet of an Irish folklore. I based the character off the story of Abhartach an Irish king who came back to life after he was not buried properly. He is known to be one of the first vampires. In this project I wanted to create a puppet and a set to shoot a small scene of Abhartach coming back to life after being locked away for centuries. Unfortunately due to covid19 only the puppet could be made.
