Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Disney nemo puppet show tech Question


Hi All;
   Has anyone seen the "Finding Nemo" show at Disney's Animal Kingdom? I saw 
a piece about it on TV and I am curious about the mechanisms of the lead 
puppets and also what the faces are made out of.
    Also if anyone knows the mouth and eye mechanisim that they use. We are 
building a new show this summer and would love to use that technique in our 
show.    Please let me know , Thanks
