On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Paul Louis. I’m a professional puppeteer and puppet builder. You know when you were a child and used to play with your toys, and you’re holding them with your hands and talk to each other, if you have dolls or little figurines, you made them talk to each other. Well, puppeteers are an extension of that, the differences are that the puppeteers are able to move and the little toys are really not able to move and project moves and different emotions and you know, lip sync, dialog. Now, a little bit about lip sync, sometimes when puppeteers put the puppets on, the lip sync something like this, hello, my name is. Wrong, again, because if you have been speaking like that in real life as human, you will be speaking like this. So what you want to do is you want to open and close characters mouth, upon every syllable. And the way you would do that is again, you will put your hands inside the puppets body, bring the puppet up in the frame, hello, how are you? Good to see you, yes it is. Not, hello, how are you? Again, open and close on every syllable. Yes, open and close on every syllable. And that’s how you operate a puppets head. On behalf of tvlesson.com, this has been Paul Louis. Thank you for watching
