Footnote: In one of the comments on the last ‘train travel’ post Kat (please go visit Kat and have a look at her beautiful artwork) suggested I have a look at Madame Tutli-Putli, a stop motion Canadian Film that took out Best Short Film Cannes 2007. Thank you Kat....what a clever intriguing film….

Wow! Those marionettes are amazing - if not a little spooky! And...what a story! I'll have to come back this evening when I'm at home and check out all that video footage Chrisy - something to look forward to!!

Yet another educational experience. Thank you for telling up about the Grimstones. I'll have to have a closer look at that one.

Yay! I'll finally be able to look at your blog properly (my internetz was always way too slow to load your gorgeous collection of pictures) as we're getting speedy access in a few weeks!

Yay!

How interesting! The marionettes are very unusual, and i have to agree with Sam, a little spooky too :)

I love those marionettes at the top! Creepy and fascinating. Your blog gives me inspiration for my own creepy work every week... ;)

I don't mind a bit of 'spooky'! Actually I prefer spooky to cute. Cute is spooky sometimes. Like those dolls you put in the corner that look like kids. Spooky.
