Subject: [Puptcrit] Aardman Fire

The loss of Aardman animation history to a major fire is  sad news. The final results, PERFORMANCE on film, tape, disc remains, and was the goal of all that effort.

Preserving the original 3-D puppets, awards, posters, photos and such as important. Their destruction is a great loss, but those of us who strive to preserve this kind of puppetry history know that not all the good stuff is preserved. We do the best we can in the face of fire, flood, storm, politics, war and other disasters.

It is also a reason that that photographic and written records, books, DVDs and so on are an important backup for preservation of puppet history, and such records need to be stored in more than one place or future puppeteers will lose an important legacy.---ALAN COOK
