HI, I have just handed in the last 20 of a series of 67 short programs to be transmitted on Christian TV here in Colombia. I have uploaded them all to youtube, but have only subtitled 20 into English so far. I will make them public as I subtitle them. This episode is our querky presenter's father Berdinand Spark. Hard to believe this was done just before the puppeteer went into University.... 6 years ago! He has just graduated with a degree in acting. We have just started doing new stuff with him now he is out of suspended animation. Subscribe to the channel  to get  notified of  further episodes  when subtitles are done, and any new material I upload.

 Episode 21 subtitled into English. A walk down memory lane. My daughter was the flower.

These are great! Really love the sets you have built, and the flower is cute - you are being upstaged your daughter gave a scene stealing performance! Smiley I'm off to subscribe to your channel as I would like to hear more of the translated versions as well!

Very nicely done! Did you do the animation also? I almost missed the puppets closing their eyes when they prayed. That was a cool little detail that you added. Smiley

Yes, Shawn I did do the animation. Its an oldie so I am not that proud of it. No lip sinc at all for example. ┬┤What we do these days is way better. And the techniques these days in 2D animation is verging on puppetry. We use Anime Studio. You build a 'puppet' out of vectors,or images in layers, and attach bones, and then position them on a timeline using the bones, and the computer moves them. Much like shadow puppetry. Really easy and quick. You can even record movements by moving the bones in real time, which the program records, and  then repeat back for you. Lip sincing is even automatic...I don't know why more animators have not found the program. What used to take me three days, I can do in about 20 mins now.
  The closed eyes on the puppets is just editing. We pin the pupil into the eyeball, then when they need to be closed, cut to the other puppet for a comment, change the pupils for a piece of shoe lace with a pin  melted into each end to then pin into each side of the eyeball. A temporary eyelid in cloth, stuck with double sided tape or rolled masking tape is even better looking. Then when the prayer is over, cut to a shot with the pupil back in place. If the  puppet is a generic, you can replace the whole eye with a closed one for the  closed eye shot.

Ah, yet another gold plated tip from pagestep007, about the closed eyes this time! That hadn't dawned on me to do it like that. Very clever!! Smiley

Hi, Just thought I'd post another episode, since I did the subtitles for all you English speakers(make sure you have your subtitles turned on.) Para todos quien hablan Espanol, bendiciones.

Anyone Hungry? Chewy Ching, a chef from Huan Ding  tells of how he got out of financial ruin when  no-one wants  more rice.

Hi Guys, another episode recorded and edited, but its a bit of a secret because it's going on a DVD. Maybe we might  give you a sneak preview later...in the meantime a test using free software, 'Blender' to do a key.

I really want to like this - it's always fun to watch puppetry in Spanish - but the racial caricature that's been done with that chef's puppet is...muy lamentable (por decirlo educadamente).
