Wee Sing Under The Sea is a children's movie that you can buy or rent at your local video store.
We built Spike and Ink as well as the Hermit, the Hermit Crab, and even performed several of the characters
in the movie. Spike is a rod puppet about 18 inches in diameter, with a moving mouth and the ability to puff
up like a real puffer fish. Ink, the Octopus, on the other hand, is one of the biggest puppets we've ever built.
He's operated by up to 10 puppeteers, with one sitting inside. When fully operational, Ink measures 12 feet
across with all of his tentacles extended. His eyes are robotic, with a puppeteer able to both blink them and
move them left or right. His mouth is cable-operated with another puppeteer working those controls.
This film still touches our hearts every time we
see it. Such care was taken by Director David
Poulshock in this children's musical fantasy as
he brought the film to reality that it truly made it
one enjoyable film to work on. Sue Bonde's
colorful designs, and the vision of Pam Nipp
and Susan Beale make this one incredible
journey using giant puppets as some of the
main characters of the film. We still find
ourselves humming some of the tunes after all
