Why are puppets made out of soft wood?

Soft woods are easier to carve, making details such as faces and hands easier to provide. Also, puppet body parts may need to be carefully or accurately drilled, to add controls or strings. In soft woods, this is more easily done without causing breaks or cracks.

How are stop motion puppets used in making animation?

The puppets are articulated and captured on film using incremental adjustments to the puppet . The more the puppet is manipulated and filmed the smoother the animation . Take a look at the 'making of' featurettes that are often part of the bonus features on DVDs where the film is one of Stop=motion such as Coraline and others .

How do you make Potter Puppet Pals Puppets?

Each puppet took roughly about 10 hours to make. I designed each of the faces and hair by watching the various Puppet Pals videos many, many, many times, and tracing various screen shots.

Each puppet has at its core a wooden dowel with part of a popsicle stick glued on at the top to form a "t" shape. The top of the "t" is inside the head of the puppet. The top bar of the "t" allows the entire puppet to rotate properly when you twirl the rod. The "t" was inserted into the pre-sewn head through the bottom of the long neck tube then I stuffed it very firmly with poly stuffing wads poked in with a knitting needle. Then I sewed shut the bottom of the neck tube. The black robes were sewn separately, then sewn to the neck tube to complete the puppet. The robes are slightly longer than the dowel rod.

The puppets are made out of felt and the facial details are painted on with fabric paint. Voldemorts eyes were first painted red, and while the paint was still wet I sprinkled on red ultra fine poly glitter (then vacuumed up the excess after the fabric paint dried). I then outlined his eyes in black and added the black pupils. Harry's glasses were painted white, with opalescent poly glitter sprinkled on the wet paint. Voldemort's eyes look fantastic in the way they reflect the light. I am very fond of Voldemort-the-puppet. He has a great personality.

The Gryffindor badge on the puppets was something I found on the internet and I just scaled it appropriately and printed it out, cut it out, and glued it on to the robes.

Each puppet has a piece of white "loop" velcro sewed to each hand. This is so that they can "hold" props like wands (to make wands I bought el cheapo kids paint brushes and cut the handles off and wrapped the thicker end of the handle with black "hook" velcro such that it would stick to the loop velcro on the puppets' hands). The puppets also have a thin strip of elastic tacked on by the ends such that the elastic lies across the puppet's palm. A rod with a loop on an end of it can be hooked on to this elastic and then used to move the puppet's arm.

Can you purchase the potter puppet pal puppets?

No. Unless you can ask the owner, he might say no because he needs them for his ppp show. The owner is Neil Cicierega. He and his sister, Emmy made the Potter Puppet Pals themselves. They're probably the only ones in the world and somehow, I don't think he would be willing to sell them.

When did puppets start?

AnswerMost people who are Puppeteers will agree that puppetry's roots were formed in China as well as Bali/Indonesia. They were used as teaching tools in small family groups and were often manipulated (performed) by the older members of the family. Grandmother's and Grandfather's would share personal stories of their youth, bravery and honor in order to hand down the legends of their family history.

Puppets were not at all like we see today instead, they were crafted from animal hides to have the outline and shape of a person, animal or object. These were known as shadow puppets. They could be performed against a wall with tall moving shadows or, indoors with a bright lantern against the linens much like our movie screens today. Either way, was a treat for families and provided a special bonding time while being educational and traditional.

Today, we continue these teachings and entertainment forms though not nearly as personal as in your living room by your grandparents, instead they are still in your home but performed by professional Puppeteers.

In Naruto which is better human puppets or normal puppets?

Human puppets are better because they can generate chakra and do ninjutsu.

Puppets are an important part of learning through exampling (watching from outside our bodies) just like acting, theater, film and television. However, where puppets are concerned you must first ask the question:

"What are you trying to accomplish?" Are you teaching your audience? Showing them how to do something or simply entertaining them with a good belly laugh?

Belly laughs can come from a mix of any type, style or method of puppetry. That is simple and I think all people could agree with that statement. However, if you are talking about using animals or humans in your performance, you should consider the age first, fitting content and which style best suits the character.

For example, if you were teaching kids not to smoke...would your audience relate to ahuman child smoking behind the school? Yes. Would they relate to a turtle smoking behind the school? Maybe...but not as likely. But they may relate to a dragon puppet smoking behind the school, so it's the choice of characters that really matter as well as humor or serious. No one (not even children) would take a smoking dragon seriously even if you intended it to be. But a human would be taken seriously.

If you have a limited amount of puppets, think of the stories, lessons and humor that could be matched best before continuing onward.
