Final Project - Puppet - Child Narrator
This is the narrator as a child, at around 8 years old, which will appear briefly at the beginning of the film. This is the smallest puppet in the film and weighs very little, due to balsa internal components. He was sculpted based off of photos of early 1900s 'newsboys' you know, the ones who sold papers on street corners and stereotypically shouted "EXTRA! EXTRA!" at everyone. He was originally going to be wearing one of those flat caps that newsboys often wore, but I spent a fair amount of time sculpting his hair, so sod putting a hat over it.
