'Last Post Home' featuring Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band on the instrumental version and then again with Honley Male Voice Choir on the second single September 2018.
Making Tommy all information from A war to end no wars. The main puppet of Tommy was constructed throughout 2009. Tommy started out life as a Professional Armature Kit which I purchased from Animation Supplies (You can buy the kit HERE). I sketched up some ideas and made some measurements to ensure the armature was cut to size and assembled correctly. The head was carved from blue upholstery foam and then painted with acrylics, his hair was made from some surplus brown velvet and his eyes are acrylic eyes which can also be purchased from Animation Supplies. After various trials to find the perfect material, Tommy's hands were eventually made from thin foam make-up pads. Tommy's uniform and cap were made from felt, with a ribbon belt and putties. His gloves were made from a pair of old (washed) socks. Tommy is animated using a magnetic tie-down system, meaning he has metal feet and plates on the bottom of his boots which are held into place on sets using incredibly strong magnets..Learn More
