Trick Marionette 2

This footage is certainly not the best, but excuse me, how often did a real alien got banned on any film??  The pleasure of Puppetry and Marionettes in particular is the possibility to invent and create characters. They don't have to stay in the earthly realm. This little????? whatever was created for Mustava and the Moon a space show I did some years back. Technically its a rod marionette. They are in various forms very traditional and popular in Sicily, the Amiens area and Prague. Rod marionette simply means that a strong wire or in my case a aluminium tube are directly attached to the body to facilitate manipulation. This of course opens up different possibilities of movement.

Here is a link to Wikipedia and a nice overview of possibilities in the area with many additional links
