Marionettes

Marionettes are worked with one or more puppeteers, using strings suspended from a control mechanism. Beautiful on film, the camera illuminates details, and the puppeteers can be easily positioned out of frame. For theatre, short string marionettes are used when puppeteers are meant to be seen by the audience... To conceal the marionettists in a theatre production, long string marionettes are used, worked from an overhead scaffolding structure built over the stage. Marionette movement looks stylised and can work well with fantasy characters or floating/flying puppets.
