This scene was a ton of fun to produce. First off, we got to see cute, fuzzy puppets getting physically abused which is always good for a laugh!
Next, Ian got to make this beautiful little sculpture which we filmed to look 18 feet tall….
And finally, given that we are not really a puppet shop and don’t have all the proper equipment, we had to figure out how to rig a set up so that we could actually see what we were doing in camera. The way we handled it? One camera, filming the ACTUAL camera and sending a feed of that screen to a monitor that was facing Ian and Alex. Now THAT’S thinkin’!
