 :lol I love to find these gems when searching for puppet stuff.  A person who just happens to have a puppet and decided to bring it out for an impromptu performance. Like this gal with a marionette version of my Pelham vent puppet.

I found this interesting clip today. When I was pre school, I remember watching The Edge Of Night with my mother in the Black and White Days. That show along with The Dick Tracy comic strip and later Alfred Hitchcock movies were what made me interested in story writing. I was not watching this show in later years but this clip someone being killed by a puppet.  http://youtu.be/4OmExp3dhuI (http://youtu.be/4OmExp3dhuI)

I happened to just find the last Howdy Doody Show.  A rather sad ending with a shocking revelation at the end about Clara Bell.  Then an advertisement that next week in that time slot will be The Sherry Lewis Show.

This was shared with me on my youtube site.  Kind of weird and creepy, but interesting none the less.  From Viet Nam.  Notice that two guys are sharing hands with the lifesize puppet. Also funny that they made her white. I will always love you (puppetry version) - Tribune to Whitney Houston (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHAgiFeg0RU#ws)

I just found this relatively new youtube site called Sockpuppet Theater. An adult orientated puppet show. Very interesting simple puppets.  Very interesting use of background puppets doing everyday things. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYUkkWEEPII (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYUkkWEEPII)

Haha, The Director. The Sockpuppet theatre clips are well funny! Check out the 'Stop Killing your pets' video, its brilliant. Such a simple idea reading out the 'Troll Rage' on comments sections, I'm really impressed. Just goes to show, great ideas are all around staring us in the face waiting for us to take notice! Full marks to them, original and funny!  :lol

I kind of like the off kilter eyes! :)  Nice production value on the videos. How many caught the background puppet in the coffee shop?


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: The Director on December 08, 2012, 12:45:26 pm
Yes Shawn, I mentioned to check out the activity in the backgrounds.  One of the videos is in a library and there is a librarian puppet in the background moving a cart through the book shelves.  Lots of thought going into this.


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: The Director on January 03, 2013, 08:03:51 am
I found this today. It kind of reminds me of my Auntie charactor.  They appear to be wearing rubber full body suits making them human puppets. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3RK8OzPEBM&feature=share&list=UUIpVqw-lwKlqCvd4wOm7Kqw (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3RK8OzPEBM&feature=share&list=UUIpVqw-lwKlqCvd4wOm7Kqw)


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: Shawn Sorrell on January 03, 2013, 08:41:00 am
Interesting. Not full body suites I am pretty sure but operated by more then one puppeteer. If you look at the shot in the lower right of the screen you can see ghosting at the elbow of the older lady. Pretty sure that is from green screen and you are getting a faint image of the puppeteers arm that enters at the elbow of the puppet. In other clips you'll notice the elbow are below the table or view line. :)  I would say they take two to three puppeteers for each one.


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: pagestep007 on January 03, 2013, 05:01:23 pm
I agree Shawn. They have a similar TV show here. Heads are latex, cast from clay sculpts of popular, or unpopular politicians etc. These ones seem to have eye mechanisms too, and most are two or three man puppets. Your observations on the green screen old lady, very good.

Post by: Andrew on January 04, 2013, 12:06:19 am
That is a clip from ZA News, a popular political web series from South Africa loosely based on Spitting Image (in fact, they were recently visited by one of the Spitting Image co-creators Roger Law!). They use a mixed bag of techniques to film the show, including green screen and a variation on the Czech black technique.

Here is a behind-the-scenes special about the show that includes a number of shots of the puppeteers at work:

Excellent behind the scenes! Really shows all the aspects of putting the show together. Love the fact that they showed them working with the easy chairs and the positions the puppeteers have to work from.

Just when you think you've seen everything. Has anyone heard of Nick Cave.  This vid is a display of his costumes made out of recycled material.  There are other videos of shows he's done with dancing and movement. http://youtu.be/AF1iciRZX84 (http://youtu.be/AF1iciRZX84)

"The Knee Puppet", Oh my gosh, I'm like a magnet when I see something.  I experimented making a knee puppet last night. Using googly eyes and "aunties" nose and mouth mask.  I was able to move the mouth and it looked like a real living creature. Very freaky and I guess creepy.  So I will try to fit him into the next episode (wich I have no idea what it will be) It may have to be a relative of auntie.  Other ideas for a face are now flying around.  I may have to start a whole new knee puppet series.  However it is very awkward to get shots without the rest of me in the picture.


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube

I like the puppets. It was some wonderful voice work and manipulation. Thanks for the share!  I felt a bit like I had missed out on some earlier scene or perhaps did not no the back story.... ah wait I see there are other parts and that this was just part of a full production.  Have to do some more watching.


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: Shawn Sorrell on March 25, 2013, 04:00:33 pm
Well I watched others in his repertoire.  Pretty interesting stuff. Very much what I call puppet theater. Thought I would share this one here also.  The description with this one is: "Boy dances with Death. Boy survives and his father Lazarillo dies. Boy speaks his first word."  Really some nice movement and manipulation. You really believe there are two characters on stage.

Yeah I thought it might have been someone else because from memory her hair colour was different; but then I watched the video some more and I'm pretty sure it's the same act.

I admit I never saw Jim Henson's Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas back in the late 1970s (in fact I don't even think it ever screened on NZ television). Anywho ...

Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: Snail on April 27, 2013, 07:29:39 am
I needed to see that today, thanks.  I am wondering where all the puppeteers bodies are in some of those scenes.  Never saw a fish puppet actually in water, that was interesting. Wish I could see behind the scene shots to see the mechanics of the performance. Such creativity in so many tiny touches. Nice treasure.


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: Na on April 27, 2013, 08:01:44 am
If I remember right, Emmett Otter was done on a raised platform - they built sets and props onto the platform, allowing them to work from below, at the sides, and above... Ah yeah, I'm right:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmet_Otter%27s_Jug-Band_Christmas#Jim_Henson_television_special (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmet_Otter%27s_Jug-Band_Christmas#Jim_Henson_television_special)
http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Emmet_Otter%27s_Jug-Band_Christmas (http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Emmet_Otter%27s_Jug-Band_Christmas)

They had behind-the-scenes shots of them working on the set at the Atlanta (Georgia) puppet centre, if you ever get that way.


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: Snail on April 27, 2013, 08:58:24 am
Wow thanks for the links, I need that DVD with behind the scene shots, I am putting in a request for Mother's day.


Title: Re: Hidden Treasures on Youtube
Post by: Na on April 28, 2013, 01:57:56 am
You're welcome! I remember it clearly actually because it was one of the exhibits that had me wanting to learn more about it. I think I should put that DVD on my list of things to buy too!

... Isn't it funny though how we can so easily forget that TV and film is done on a set and possibly not even on the floor that you're standing on? It reminds me of all the pics of The Dark Crystal where Henson is shown standing on the set with his arms in the air - you really fall for the idea that all of the puppets are worked from the ground up.

Well it is one of the oldest uses of puppetry. Puppetry has been used in religious pageantry all the way back into the Middle ages and probably before then. I will say that this church does have a very different approach to a service then others. I almost wonder if many of them are artist and performers.

If you like string marionettes, have a look to this video. A marionette realizes the strings and breaks them. Good story and great manipulation. The puppeteer is  Philippe Genty. I looked on a Spanish puppetry site http://www.titerenet.com (http://www.titerenet.com)

I hate to admit it, but I watched this one while at work (shame on me) and had to watch it without sound. Even without sound, this was wonderful. It reminds me of the movie "Strings." It's very evocative and very sad. I really liked this.

theater terra (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaMXUx1GNd0)

It is Dutch (I can't help that you don't understand it...) but I realy love this kind of theater because the magic of puppetry is there. You see the puppeteer but when you are watching you forget the puppeteer and only see the puppet. Theater Terra is very creative in there stage props ( i hope it is the correct word)The bed they turn around and it is an ful dinner table with bread, cups.

I agree with Shawn. I see you have  just  done a  clip, but  this internet connection  does not let  me  view it yet. I'll check it out when I can  get another connection. I also agree it is a lot  of effort  doing the  videos. I  am having  that  problem , as I am getting a lot  of offline stuff done , but  not much editing at the  moment.

Pretty neat.  Wonder how far this ever developed. The short blurb on the video says it was a workshop for a new musical. It was produced by puppetryarts.org (http://puppetryarts.org) so perhaps I'll find some information over there. They do some really fun stuff! Check out this animatronic dragon puppet they made in collaboration with NYU Poly Bots Club of NYU Poly Technical College.

Cool video.  Looked kind of like they used the puppets in window displays at businesses around town. Not sure if it was just to create this video or if perhaps they use it as a way to market their company. I would bet there are businesses out there that would not mind a puppet company putting a display in their window since it would attract attention to their own business. Might even be able to turn it into a money maker for the puppet company by presenting it as a service to others. Hmm...

Thought I'd share this. Video via Puppet Kaos, he's performing one of the puppets. He posted it last year but I'm only now finding it.

And yet again something different and interesting. I love the side kick.  Check out the youtube site for a documentary about the artist.

Found this via Puppet Kaos. Bloopers from Emmett Otter. It's very funny, but highly surprised that for a bunch of puppeteers they didn't think to rig up some sort of fishing line for the problem...

Wow! 233 takes! That was just for a simple what... 3 second, if that, bit.

Yep. One reason why I was so confused as to why they didn't just rig something up to get it right.

I am also not really sure what "right" was. :)  Seems they ended up with it rolling out then hitting the milk can and flipping over.  I thought some of them where it just rolled by where pretty good but perhaps in the next shot the owner had to come out and retrieve it. They may have even already filmed the next shot and where trying to replicate the location it ended up.

Yeah, I had the same thought. I wasn't sure what they were trying to do, except that they were getting it wrong. Still I think some sort of fishing line apparatus would have worked - sort of like a flying fox system where you have one line to keep it going in the direction you want, and another string that would allow it to roll. I don't know if that would work or makes sense, but it seems like an easier idea than just doing 300 shots and hoping you eventually get it right. Heck, even a really tiny groove in the set would have helped it a bit.

Did you get credit as a puppeteer?  I didn't see your screen name in credits but then could be you are not using your real name here. :)  Nicely done.  There are some really neat moments in the video.

That really was wonderful. I love that the puppeteers were costumed to blend in with the puppets. Very nice!
