The following is a guest post by Paula Gillgannon.
It’s the day after the first critique of my storyboard. While I mull over suggestions I will begin work building my puppet and set pieces. Luckily my sculpting supplies arrived in the mail yesterday evening. I’ll be making fast cheap armatures from aluminum wire. Since I am going to be casting the body in silicone, I won’t be able to repair the armatures if they break mid-shot because silicone skin can’t be glued back together. I am making two identical armatures and I will cast the puppet twice. I think this will be sufficient for this length of film.
