Inbetweens: Igor Fokin, The Puppeteer

Igor Fokin

This one is important…

One of the most remarkable skills that great puppeteers and animators share is the ability to crawl inside their character and really inhabit it. It’s a mysterious process, and many of the best aren’t able to really articulate how they do it. I know everyone is in a hurry lately, but please take a half an hour and watch this film. It will be good for your creative soul. In particular pay attention to the interview segments with Fokin. In a very plain-spoken way, he explains his creative process and how the personalities of his characters emerge. Animators can learn a lot from puppeteers.
