dolly said no to elvis
Official Music video for Dolly Said No to Elvis by Mark Nevin. This is the true story of Dolly Parton refusing to part with her song 'I will always love you' when Colonel Tom Parker wanted to take 50% of the royalties if Elvis recorded it! Luckily she later said yes to someone rather special...
I am so excited this video earned a Vimeo Staff Pick because it was made in 2 months on my Grandma's dining table!

Behind the scenes
Initial sketches and reference images for The Colonel and Dolly
Selection of images from the animatic
I had not made such a bulky puppet before I attempted The Colonel, so I had a few teething problems, and ended up making him again from scratch a day before shooting started! Below are some photos of the 1st attempt, and then the transition to a simpler, more flexible puppet.
