Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] WEB puppetry


I fall into that category, or will soon.

I'm currently in the Secret Lab stage of my first series of works I hope
to post out to the net later this year, I have thought about doing the
online journal thing (Blog just doesn't sound right to me ;-) )
documenting my trials, tribulations, and hopefully progress- anyone
interested in reading that?

Things I've learned so far:

To paraphrase the great Phil Tippet (animatronic and F/X designer since
the original Star Wars era): "The great thing about computers is that
anything you imagine can now be put on the screen.  The terrible thing is
that anything you imagine can now be put on the screen."


Animation World Network has had a lot of articles on this recently
http://www.awn.com

I'd be happy to compare notes with anyone on this topic.
