Thank you! The software I use is to edit is premiere, and my camera is a Fuji j150, a wide-angle point-and-shoot. In the future, I hope to upgrade to something that can function as a webcam, and allow me to see a ghost of the last frame I take before I shoot a new one.
I was kind of clever with the tie-downs, they’re hidden in the big toes of the puppet. Inside of the toe is a nut, and I just screw in the tie-down through a pegboard-like piece of wood.
Finally, the puppet’s armature is wood and aluminum wire (built up with foam, after), and the fur is felt! The clothes are just scaled-down versions of normal clothing, with custom patterns.
