I built a fully rigged and animated duck armature puppet for this project, especially notable for it's replaceable bill, specifically made for lip synch. The puppet was photographed three separate times in front of a greens screen, with each take then being composited together into the final product. Some additional background characters were fabricated out of paper and shot with a down-shoot, as you can see further below.
