Blaze AND The Monster Machines: Light Up the Night
Making Blaze glow in the dark for Nick Jr. was so much fun that it was time to show Blaze fans how to do it themselves. Our team was asked to create a glow-in-the-dark project that families could make together. And after reminiscing on our favorite childhood night lights, we decided to bring the adventures of Blaze and Starla to life through one glowing journey.
The set was made up of neon paper, paint, pom poms, paper clips, tape, glue, and other supplies you can find at home. Our puppets were crafted out of light-weight air-drying clay, bottle caps, pipe cleaners, and a bit of cardboard. Through the use of black light animation, we were able to take Blaze and Starla on a road trip full obstacles, ending with one epic scene that we're "over the moon" for. You can call it post-production, we call it magic. Learn how to make your night light on the Nick Jr. website.
