Little shop of horrors

This shot is very clever and took a lot of work as it shows how much effort directors will put in to one shot. The shot is used to show the dentist singing his song “I am your dentist” whilst he is savagely working on a patients mouth. For this shot a giant funtional puppet mouth was developed just for the effect of perspective for the audience.

the crack fox

In the series ‘The Mighty Boosh’ you meet the crack fox and in the shot he declares himself as the crack fox. You can also see this as he looks drugged up and his hands are practically made of syringes.
