Tonight we finally completed the construction phase for TV puppetry at Sydney Film School, so next Wednesday performance for the camera will finally begin. It's a great challenge trying to balance the workshop time, to encorporate all the skills required for TV Puppetry. Each week we've been polishing up the lipsync and eye focus, while at the same time taking the design and construction a little further.
Next year we are planning more advanced courses to take the art of puppetry for the screen even further by encouraging the students to shoot their own short films on location. For further information on courses, just drop me a line!
Check out the Chensational blog for some interesting foam puppet construction (just page down a little to see the patterns).
