Wee Sing Under The Sea is a children's movie
that was released in 2004.
We built the movie characters Spike and Ink as
well as Hermit, the Hermit Crab, and even
performed several of the characters in the movie.
Spike, the Pufferfish, 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
This film still touches our hearts every
time we see it. Such care was taken by
Director David Poulshock on 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 these years.
