While there were minor successes, for the most part, this project was a train wreck. I meant to have multiple layers to make a near interesting background. Several objects are poorly rendered due to time constraints.
THE BIGGEST PROBLEM - I managed all the movement keys for the puppet in a separate composition thinking I could simply export it with a transparent background and put it into the scene. I ended up having to key color remove the background (that's what caused her to be transparent), AND the movement does not match at all with the pace of the background.
Much revision is needed.
