Titles for my latest co-directing adventure with Lucy Goodman. For me puppets are an interesting synthesis of animation and live-action. It's like working with an animated character and an actor at the same time. Since I have no classical training in puppeteering I tend to re-invent the wheel sometimes, and it's sometimes tricky technically, but always great fun and filled with laughter. This sequence as usual follows my storyboard to the frame, but there was plenty of spontaneity thrown in. CGI animation by Blue Zoo under my direction.
