We constructed everything from scratch in our good old Centennial Garage in Chinatown, Los Angeles.
Here were a few of our first designs...
And the sculpt...
We made half-D puppets out of super sculpty.
The cows had detachable mouths so they could chew on grass.
The floor was made using real dirt from outside mixed with Elmer's Glue - can't get more realistic than that!
The final set-up was a HUUGE cheat to make the background barn, cows, and spaceship look far away... but really the table was angled and the set was smaller than it appeared.
