About Bitz the Whippet
Among other things I am an experimental stop motion puppet builder and animator. 'BITZ- the whippet made from random stuff' was the first puppet I made and is a character I have developed along side my other work. She is inspired by my 2 dogs and was made from random stuff I had in my tool box. Recently I was able to make a 4 min film staring her... but she has So more fun to have, particularly because the 'BITZ' film introduced a companion for Bitz, a puppy called Bobz. I intend to create a series of four short 45second web episodes chronicling the antics of 'BITZ & BOBZ'. I aim to release one animation every 3 months starting with a christmas episode in December 2017. To make this happen I need to improve and develop the Bitz puppet (she is always in development) and build a Bobz puppet from scratch (The current one was only fit for one scene). I also need to fund and build more sets, upgrade and buy more tech equipment, commission a composer... most importantly i need to fund my own TIME. I work freelance as an art tutor and illustrator and will need to allow myself time to develop and produce this idea. I believe the animations will be a lot of fun and together maybe we can make a this upcycled whippety idea into something special! The more time I can spend on this idea the better it will be. Thanks you so much for you help- I'll try to make you proud to be part of it. J.
