I tried animating the puppets today by taking a short shot, moving the puppet, taking another short shot and so on. In Adobe Premier Pro CS6 I pulled one frame from each shot successively in order to make this short sequence.
I decided to film the initial scene against the backdrop of the green screen with the intention of keying out the green and using a different scene behind but it didn’t work; I couldn’t light the green screen properly in my bedroom using two Dedo lights.
I like the bright green background that changes to duller lighting when the boy puppet hits the ground. The everyday mundane things like the radiator contrasts with the magical sense of the puppets moving.
