Rob’s Propshop, Amsterdam
for toothpaste–commercial.

Larger than life
the head is ± 60 cm long


± 4 weeks

The Propshop has asked Manimal Works to help with the sculpting and building of this model. I also helped with the making of the teeth, moulds and casting of the model. The head is a mix of a crocodile and an alligator to make the teeth better visible. The animal used fore the walking shots is a real alligator and the model should not differ too much from this animal.
We had to make the head bigger to make it big enough fore a small bird to land and sit in the mouth. The model could open the mouth, move the eyes, raise the head and move the tongue and throat.
