The inside story of Jium Henson's Creature Shop
At one fell swoop, with their 1996 Academy Award for Babe, awarded for their part in creating the visual effects, the Creature Shop became the world's most celebrated animatronics company. Here were pigs, dogs and sheep who walked, talked and acted with their live counterparts — in a movie that redefined the fantasy film.
The Oscar for the best visual effects was reward for the Creature Shop's vision in blending together the centuries-old skills of puppetry with the cutting edge technology of robotics and digital wizardry. Creature Shop puppeteers, artists, sculptors and computer experts had done it before — on movies as diverse as Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — and they would do it again on many more, from Gulliver's Travels to The English Patient, and from 101 Dalmatians to Buddy.
Here for the first time is the official book, with trade secrets revealed by the people who imagine, design and construct — in every loving detail — the incredible models who come to life on screen. In the world of The Dark Crystal, trees walk and mountains move. In Labyrinth, Hoggle the grumpy gnome realistically smiles, laughs and sneers, controlled by five puppeteers using joysticks and radio control. From the Flintstones' 20-foot-long brontosaurus to Babe the inquisitive piglet, these are all animatronics — Kermit's descendants, puppets with "no strings attached".
No Strings Attached takes us inside the Creature Shop and inside the puppets themselves, revealing how the magic is created. Interviews with the experts, step-by-step photographs, original drawings, illustrations and models, many never seen in print before, show exactly how these captivating creatures work.
For all those fascinated by film technology and Jim Henson's Creature Shop's unforgettable characters, No Strings Attached will be a treasured delight.
