Stan Winston Studios: How to Build a Hand & Rod Puppet Part 1 - Understructure is a video stream of a 3 part series where BJ Guyer famous for THE MUPPETS, CRANK YANKERS, GLEE etc, elaborates on how to create the “foundation” for your puppets. You'll see Guyer teach how to get your hand puppet projects off to a great start, from design & planning, to mouth plates & arm rods!

Part 1 focuses on understructure, which is about everything needed to bring a character to life, including hand & rod armatures supporting movements, building arms etc. Refer to Part 2 of this series for more focus on fabrication of the head and the body of the puppet, how to drape the fabric and cover the puppet, and techniques & materials for arm rod construction. In part 3, you will watch Guyer cover everything from stitching & final glue down, to creating facial features and wardrobe.
