Catch of the Day
When I opened the box from Nick on Wednesday I couldn't stop making sounds of delight. I couldn't believe how lifelike the puppet looked in person. It's a marvel that only a person of Nick's many years of experience could achieve. It's highly animate-able to say the least. Just the right amount of function and detail to perfectly fool the camera's eye.
Of course the concept of it is hilarious as well, Piano Tuna. I think it should be tempted by a musical note/worm and get hooked for an exit to some tinkling ivory effects.
Everyone has been sending in such phenomenal puppets for the underwater Halfland "Democra-Sea" scene that I really feel I should hot glue together all the puppet mailing boxes that they've arrived in and tie down a bunch and wriggle them for a quick clip test.
