The intricate puppetry behind War Horse


Awesome TED Talk showing the South African puppet masters behind the long-running (and recently Tony sweeping) stage production of War Horse. They start with a masterful little hyena and work their way to the War Horse designs. Fascinating and beautiful, I can see why the stage play was and is such a hit. I just wonder how Spielberg is going to recreate the magic on the big screen with horse actors.
