Hand dancing

I love the music video we are shooting today, which is a good thing, considering how many times we have to listen to it. We did some fun choreography with live hands, pretty complicated stuff involving two puppets and an actor, but we had time to practise it and nailed it in two takes. We were all very happy.

Gummi Þor brought in a puppet today for fun. I’d seen the video of it, but hadn’t had a chance to work with it. It’s entirely remote controlled. If you go here and clicked on one of the videos in the top row you can see a demo of Gummi’s puppets. The last one on the video is the one he brought in. A puppet like this is useful for a stunt shot in which there’s no way to get a puppeteer in place. It’s a nicely engineered thing.
