Puppet Concepts

Micah Husereaux a local movie maker has asked me to build four puppets to be in a movie he is making. Here are the concept drawings in the above photos.

This morning Friday July 2nd I contacted Micah and told him I could not do the puppets for his project. The project was different than I thought at first and feel I was wrong for this movie. I'm still going to make the puppets but for my own movie.

How interesting! I tried to make marionettes a long time ago, but since I couldn't do them in wood I tried papier mâché, but since the dolls where so small, they didn't got any waight and didn't move well.

What size will the final puppets have? It is of the kind you pull on your hand or marionettes or some other solution?

I just backed out of the movie project a few minutes ago but will be making these puppets for a movie for my own production company.

All the puppet designs are about half the size of Yoda from Star Wars.

These are full body rod puppets with the rods hidden behind the legs. There will be a hidden plug in the back for a hand or cable control. These puppets can't walk and talk at the same time.
