War Horse - stage play with puppets

Postby Charles » Wed Mar 28, 2012 11:01 am

If you're familiar with Steven Spielberg's Oscar nominated movie 'War Horse' released last year, I'm sure you'll appreciate the puppetering technology behind a stage play of the same name from the same book as the film.

It's interesting to see animation at work in a very different way. Check out this video, it has behind the scenes footage of what's involved with the production of the play, as well as historical info about just how bad World War I was for both man and beast.

Incidentally, this play is the most successful the National Theatre of Great Britain has ever had.
