The creature puppets in the Broadway musical of The Addams Family are ingeniously and fantastically low tech.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I remember Basil Twist was the one who made the puppet prototype dementors for Harry Potter 3 before they went with CGI. There's some footage of those on the DVD... beautiful underwater puppetry. Pity they couldn't make it happen.

  2. really interesting. yes, the world can survive without digital special effects!
