This is an articulated LEGO puppet of Barney the Dinosaur I made for a quick stop-motion animation. I came up with this idea over the summer, but put it on hold due to some logistical issues.

Some of the logistical issues included having him stand firmly on the table, having him tie his noose (which was extremely difficult), and getting the proper lighting in my small space.

For the music, I created an instrumental track of “This Old Man” digitally in FL Studio, then sang over it, and mixed the audio together in Audition.

This was the first animation I made using my stop-motion puppet rig which I ordered from Spain. I used the puppet rig to make Barney jump from the ground to the table in the beginning, although the footage didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted.
