Hi there- first time posting. It took me a year to hunt down some of the X-Bomber videos here in the US, but I did and have been gradually watching them. It took me a few episodes to get into their groove, but it worked. I can't believe how ambitious the show is.I am working on a short puppet film of my own and would like to use some of the techniques of puppet construction that were in Star Fleet. Does anyone know of any technically oriented pages that cover the special effects and the building of the puppets?I am especially interested in the faces of the characters. They have very smooth and matte faces. I was thinking that perhaps they are molded with a "skin" of rubber? Sometimes when they do a closeup of a character's mouth, it looks a little ragged... like perhaps it was once a single piece that got cut?Very refined character design... thansk for any help that you out there may be able to offer me!
