This is the very first time I try to create a scene - using my puppets as characters- which is something I always wanted to do. Lots of details were put into considerations, obviously, such as light, background, setting of camera, angles, distance, composition. I think it took almost 50 shots to get one just right, but the result is more than satisfactory.
Another thing: don't worry about a thing, kids, Ernie is totally fine. He's just acting, you know. :P
