'Dead' Taxidermy Homing Pigeon

posted 2014 Sep by Allis Markham

I was recently contacted by a filmmaker looking for a 'dead' looking pigeon that was taxidermied. The idea being that it would be brought to life and in editing by switching the mount with a live one. My challenge was to keep the skin moist enough that the eyelids and extremities would be movable, but also all movement would be anatomically correct. I'll be sure to link to the final result once it's out!
