Professionals’ Remarks

“Hallelujah! to Wuchan Kim’s beautiful armatures. He is a very gifted artist with a deep understanding of puppets and their movements, and he gives you admirable and experienced advice along with his immaculate artistry and craftsmanship.”

“When I first laid my hands on the armature for puppet by Master Wuchan Kim, their stability and light weight were a pleasant surprise with each group and assembly virtually a work of art. It was at first sight that I believed that this Master is able to raise to new heights both Cheburashka and his friends, living on the screen since the 1960s….”

Mikhail Tumelya
ART DESIGNER OF CHEBURASHKA  (2007-2012, BELARUS)

“仕上がりが美しいArmatureです。人形に入れないで、そのままずっと触っていたいくらい。 一番の特徴は両側がボールになっているジョイントどうしをつなぐ軸。Armatureがどの方向を向いていても軸の回転を妨げないからアニメートをするときに有効です。そして、ArmatureはReasonableであり、彼は誠実な人です。”
