I've been making puppet films for a while now, and have another one planned. However, I would like to shoot in miniature sets with live puppetry. Has anyone done anything like this before? I have no idea how to approach it really, and the idea of having to scale things is bringing up tons of questions. How small can I make puppets and still be able to operate? What scale would work best for the sets? What mechanisms fit well in small scale puppets that would allow for expression? Any ideas or suggestions anyone might have would be amazing.
Feel free to ask for clarification as I'm not sure how clear I'm being about what I'm trying to do. I cant find an example where it has been done before.
