Hi Eric,

Thanks for stopping by! These puppet photos are all still images from a group assigment me and my classmates worked on in a Cinematography class. On this assignment we were learning about lighting and composition. I'm going to post several more images from the assignment, then talk about it more in depthly(sp?).

Hey, I'm looking forward to seeing your second post, Eric!

I love these Berfried pictures, you ever think of doing any stop motion animation with him?

as always Mark, your posts are great. i've always wondered where that kissing as an insult gag came from. one of those things that you've always seen in cartoons (well, wb cartoons) and just taken for granted. this berd puppet still reminds me of an old show called jeremy the bear. some of the best stop motion i've ever seen. he had a magic silver brief case that changed into all sorts of things. from cars to boats to hellicopters.

Hi Klangley - thanks! Yeah, I definitely want to do some stop motion with this berd! I don't have time to work on a short now, but I'll make time in the future....

Thanks onemanpunkband! That "Jeremy the Bear" show sounds really interesting - I just found some images here. Any idea if I can find a tape or DVD of it online?

Jeremy is better known as Colargol. The show, based on French children's recordings, was produced by Polish animator Tadeusz Wilkosz. There's an interview with Wilkosz in the September 05 issue of fps magazine here: http://fpsmagazine.com/mag/200509.php

this is the mose information i've found on Jeremy the Bear.
actually, a pal of mine found a great site that had tons of information but i can't find it... there isn't a lot of footage remaining of this show. and not many stations around the world aired it... Poland was communist at that time and not many countries where willing to have 'communist' programing. ( great show shadowed by unfortunate politics). the show had great tricks for special effects, like blue plastic sheets wrapped around rollers that turned... used for water in an ocean or lake. brilliant.
