Puppets of "NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY"


One of the coolest things about working on the stop motion for NEVER SLEEP AGAIN was getting to recreate some of the most memorable scenes from the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films. One of those scenes for me was definitely the image of Nancy's dead friend, Tina, standing in the hallway wearing nothing but a clear bodybag and a bucket of Type O+.

The shot as it was in the film:


Our version had to open up the shot a bit and give it some color:


Like most of the projects around here, a good deal of recycling went in to the animations for NEVER SLEEP AGAIN. The puppet of Tina was no exception...she was originally the star of the music video PUNDING for awesome L.A. rockers, boxViolet!

She may not have had a mouth but she did a lot of acting back in the day. The role of dead Tina may not have required as much acting but she did get a mouth along with a couple of other noteworthy additions:


Another favorite moment from the film: Tina's body being dragged off by an unseen force.

I think we did it justice!


Since she's in retirement now, she's been permanently mounted in a puddle of eels...just like in the movie!


More to come....
