Thanks, jim, for the precisions on the Hum.
I half-agree with what you are saying about hiring the right people to do 
the job.

In my case, however, I am the puppetbuilder, not the performer.
The performers will work with the puppet that will be given tis time.
Usually, we have a long trial period during reharsals and I can make major 
modifications, but this time, we have a tight deadline.

I don't see what's wrong with simple 1800 methods.
Whatever works. simple usually works!
I'm still a begginner builder, learning as I go.  Even these simple 
mechanics seem a bit advanced to me. They no longer seem too daunting, I'm 
trying them and learning!.
One has to learn any way that is available.

I admire the high tech work of people who go the "Henson way".
Until I can reach that level, and it will require LOTS of money which I 
don't have right now,
I will keep studying the "simplest" possible ways, reaching higher every new
