Hanks Big Break!

This guy that is the subject of my current animation. His name is Hank and he has a very 70's porn star tash. However he has a passion for gangster films and dreams of one day staring in one. To accomplish his dreams he takes part in four auditions but unfortunately doesn't do very well ;( ahhhh poor Hank! He features in 4 auditions reciting lines from the films, these include Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Taxi Driver and Scarface.

Here is the guy himself, he has been made from plasticine with a wire and foam armature. Sections of him like his eye lids, eye brows and tash are all made from milliput (air drying clay).

Hank also has 10 changeable mouths that will be used for the lip sync in the animation. These represent different sounds and letters, so that they form the different mouth movements for speech.
