The title’s a lie. Here’s Dionysus minus his arms and legs, and looking surprisingly cheerful.

I’ve been making the paper puppets for this today. I was originally going to use split pins for the joints, but I’ve been reading Oliver Postgate’s autobiography (highly recommended by the way) and he just used sewing thread stuck on with scotch magic tape for easy removal, which is a much better solution, as nothing sticks out then. The puppets have interchangeable heads for different expressions. Hopefully I’ll get the film finished by weds the 26th when I have one of the dreaded Review of Work days at uni.

(Nothing to Do With Dionysus is actually the title of a very good book about Greek tragedy)
