Subject: [Puptcrit] Seeing Pro puppets up close


http://www.unima-usa.org/pics/starkeeper2.jpg

On the new UNima website, I saw that the show "The Star Keeper" from Montreal, won a citation award.
Even if I have not yet seen the show, I have no oprobloem believeing they diserve it!

Last week, I saw two of the puppets up close, including the one linked above, and even tried them a little! Works of art, both of them.
They move so smoothly, I was shy to make them move, for fear of making them look bad!

The controls were absolutely marvelous!
I'm looking forward to learn from them, there is a possibility that I might get to take pictures, or even get a pattern for them.

We live in a marvelous time where puppeteers are willing to share their "secrets".
I decided to have no secret technique. I tell anyone interested, on the spot.
But I will charge for my time and supplies if it becomes a course.
