My Flasher Dirty Old Man marionette in my cabaret show would be offended by 
the use of this new term "flash puppetry!"   How rude of them to step into my 
arena.   Jim Gamble

"Anthony Lucas also continued Australia's strong Oscar tradition in the 
short animated film category with his 27 minute, cutout animation 
movie, The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello, 
nominated."

So I am confused (as usual).
Is the film actually done with actual, traditional, frame by frame 
cut-out animation.
Or is it actually all done on a computer using FLASH.
Or a combination?
Or doesn't it matter anymore as actual film gives way to pixels?

I would bet that it also includes 3D animation 
combined with cutout / flash.   The big cinematic 
moves of some objects in some scenes are animated 
3D models, even though it is ultimately silhouettes.

That dirty old man marionette is a vivid memory for me from the World
Puppetry Festival in 1980.  Truly an inspired idea, beautifully executed.  I
can't begin to guess how many images washed over me that week, but the
percent that stuck with me is pretty low.  You were definitely way ahead of
the curve for "flash animation", Jim.

Just saw an interesting discussion with Anthony Lucas, the creator of "The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello". Apparently it was nearly all silhouette cut outs manipulated manually (stop frame) on collaged backgrounds and then digitally enhanced...3D shots of the ship wasn't CGI but again stop motion! (I guess that makes it more than a FLASH in the pan.......sorry)
Of course the film has already won Australian and international awards including THE BIG ONE....Annecy 2005 which is adjudicated by the top 500 animators in the world.
Im certainly looking forward to seeing it........

This may not be the right forum to ask this question, but why do my e-mail 
inquiries to the P of A website go unanswered?  I joined back in July and 
promptly received a journal, but have heard nothing since.  No membership 
info, no nothing.  And no response to my inquiries as to why.

What's going on?

Greetings Critters,

   I'm off to Japan, specifically to Sendai Feb. 4-20 for performances.   I 
was there   many years ago, under PUK sponsorship.   This time it's only for 
the Miyagi prefecture, so I'll be pretty much just around Sendai, and it will be 
cold.   Any suggestions?   Best wishes to all. Jim Gamble
