For those who have already seen the photos of my puppets and set from this project, here’s the animation itself. They move! Check it out :)
"The Phantom’s Friend" is a short stop-motion animation about the Phantom of the Opera and his chance meeting with a rare Siamese kitten one night on the streets of Paris in the mid-1800s.
Based on the Susan Kay adaptation of the story behind the Phantom of the Opera, where the character of Ayesha the cat is introduced. Puppet design based on the original design by Maria Björnson for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, which is in turn based on the original novel by Gaston Leroux. The puppets and set took three weeks to build, the animation was done over 48 hours.
Characters, set, animation: Deb Yan
Advising professor: Agnieszka Woznicka

Background music: The Music of the Night (From “The Phantom of the Opera”, by Andrew Lloyd Webber) Piano by Alden David
Oh my GOSH this is beyond adorable.
well this turned out kind of poster-y
so I really liked this new format of them commenting while one person is playing. Hope they do more! (especially horror games)
Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera
I absolutely love this game’s Erik because you can tell the artists incorporated elements from his stay in Persia into his design. Really, really elegant and beautiful.
Erik using his ventriloquism on Sasha…
Yes! Thank you!! ;___; can we apprecciate that for a moment, please?
HOW DARE YOU BRING THIS BACK
Turned out okay for someone who was raised by a cocker spaniel that was brutally murdered … well, when you put it that way…
I’m an awful person, and I’m going to hell for laughing so hard at this.
“Before I answer you,” Raoul said at last in a slow, deliberate voice, “I would like to know what feelings he inspires in you, since you do not hate him.”
“Horror!” she said… And she hurled this word with such force that it drowned out the sighs of the night. x
