    I did some tests and white actually reads better than yellow on camera, so I think they'll be white.

    We shot the first batch of scenes this weekend; I cute together a few rough outtakes that were kind of funny.

    Just to sort of explain this, the audio in the scene is being replaced with a voiceover so I told the puppeteers to just tried to improv some funny dialogue. The background will eventually be replaced with a Jawa sandcrawler. The stick with a red ball on it will eventually be Chewbacca:

    Now that's one cool puppet! Altho his eyes are still a bit too wide open, imho. I think he'd look better with more tired eyes, but that's just me hehe.

    Ah yes, the European version. :D Apparently, "ninja" was too violent there. :rolleyes: In America, that's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. :)

    Buck, I simply want to say that you seem like an extremely cool guy. Your puppets are remarkable, and you're doing a wonderful job. And just to interject my two cents, I actually liked your original Yoda puppet, since it looked more original and "puppety." But honestly, all your puppets are excellent, so it's hard to make comparisons. Great job.

    What sort of material did you use to cover the Yoda and Jedi puppets? It's beautiful!

    Thanks. Bear Town was shot with a Canon ZR-65. Really you can get good image quality on almost anything with proper lighting though.

    Looking swell there Buck. Buck's right, lighting is everything. I have a Canon Optura 20 and it shoots great footage with the right lighting. Also if you want great quality, Mini DV is the format to go with.

    MiniDV is pretty good, but after shooting on it for a few years I'm switching to DVCAM because I find the quality of the tapes is better. It's more expensive, but there are fewer dropped frames and superior image quality.
