Extremely new to all of this, and I am sorry if this has already been addressed recently. I have decided to make my own puppets, I was using toys just for fun but there were a lot limits and I have an idea that will require some original puppets. I started building my puppets and I want to build sets as well, like a cabin with hardwood floors. So watching some videos on how to animate and on puppet builds I obviously saw many things on tie downs. But how does that work with set pieces? I can't drill a ton of holes in my floor because that would be noticeable in my videos. Like I said I just started and I have a million other questions but I figured this may be a good place to start with said questions.
yep, what nick said. another thing to keep in mind is that you'll wind up having to ask this question for every single setup/ shot that you do. so rather than trying to prepare the set for every possibility up front, rehearse the shot (one shot) figure out where you'll need to tie the puppet down, and plan for those 3 or 4 holes. then patch and start over for the next shot.
Thanks for your replies, I appreciate the knowledge. I did just assume that filling the holes would be a hassle, I guess there is that old saying about assuming. Thanks again!
