Pino

bir sey izlemeden (daha dogrusu dinlemeden) calisamama seklinde tezahur eden rezil aliskanligi gelistirmeye baslamam gecen sene bu zamanlara denk geliyor sanirim. haliyle de, adam gibi oturup ne duzgun bir film ne de televizyon izleyebilir hale geldim. filme yazik oluyor zira, televizyonumda da 4 kanal var biri slovak kanali, gerisi de cek. boylece el mahkum, dizilere verdim kendimi.

it was probably last year when i first started to develop this nasty habit of not being able to work without watching (or rather listening to) something. and since the main purpose is working, i can't really watch neither a good film nor tv. 'coz it's a shame to "watch" a good film without even looking at it, and my tv has four channels; one slovakian and the rest czech. so that's how i ended up watching almost all the tv series.


iste gecenlerde (gecenler derken, rahat bi 2 ayi var tabi) de boyle boyle diye bi arkadasla konusurken "ergo proxy" isimli animeyi onerdi kendileri. normalde, ki neden bilinmez, cok anime izlemiyorum aslinda ama israrlara dayanamayip basladim ergo proxy'ye. bir yandan da calisiyorum yine tabi (evet itiraf ediyorum, ingilizce dublajli izledim). dizinin ortalarina dogru, icimde bu pino karakterinin kukla/bebek/anahtarlik vs. herhangi bir seyini yapmaya yonelik akil almaz bir durtu olustu. hemen de yaptim ben de. lakin artik elim mi cok alismis nedir, tam da filmimin kuklalari skalasinda (a.k.a. 1/12) oldu minik hanim. boylece, hic hesapta yokken bir karakter daha eklemis oldum everland'e.

so, when we were talking with a friend of mine about life, universe and everything, he mentioned this anime called "ergo proxy". for whatever reason, i don't usually watch animes. but i couldn't resist the insistency for long and finally started to watch it. i was also working on puppets and stuff in the meantime. (yes, i admit. i watched it dubbed) but towards the middle of the serie, i had this incredibly strong urge to make a puppet/doll/key-chain/something of this pino character. and without even realizing, she happened to be in the exactly right scale for my film (which is 12th scale). so i found myself with a bonus inhabitant for everland.


bakiniz bu da minik hanimin orijinali.

and here is the original drawing of our little lady.


gelelim teknik detaylara. (yahu amma zaman gecmis kukla yazisi yazmayali, unutmusum valla. neyse) efenim, hanimefendinin kafasini polimer kilden yapip akrilik ile boyadim. govdesi tel iskeletten her zamanki gibi. percemi ham yunden. kostumu de keceden.

okay, moving on with the technical details. (wow, i haven't realized how long it's been since my last puppet post. i almost forgot how to write one. anyway) her head is made of polymer clay and painted with acrylics. body is basically a wire skeleton as usual. i used raw wool for the hair. and the costume is made of felt.


bu arada, belki film bitince dukkana neyin koyar satisa cikaririm. bilemiyorum simdilik tam.

by the way, i might put her up for sale after finishing the film. i'm not quite sure right now.


bakiniz ne kadar da minik.
(ya saka maka ne bicim de bitiremedim yaziyi. neyse, bu seferlik de boyle olsun artik. idare ediverin)

look how tiny she is.
(i really couldn't finish the post properly, could i? well what can you do, bear with me this time)

what do you think?

Martin Klekner said...

Great work on Pino ;-) Im glad you really watched it, did you like it?

ozlemakin said...

thanks :)
it's been quite a while actually, i just couldn't find the time to take the photographs (lack of sun was also not helping for that matter)

as for ergo proxy, yes, i liked it. but i didn't have that "oh, no! wish it would continue" moment in the end.

for me it was all in the mood, great source of inspiration for me...

anyway, still in zlin, still in the darkness of your everland world?

ozlemakin said...

yep, where else.. it's turning out to be a neverending story.. plus, skaunic's creativity for making our lives miserable is just... well. seems to be working.

how are things in prague?

Martin Klekner said...

I hate that guy. you have no idea how glad i am i wont have to go back on top of that hill...
good luck with the film. no one from our class came even close to giving their films as much effort as you keep giving yours - it will be awesome when you finish it.

im not in prague yet, starting job in september. hope it will work out...

Özlem'ciğim, seninki daha bir şahane olmuş! Böyle karnını tepeleme makarnayla doyurmuş da ağzında kalan son makarna tanesinin verdiği rehavet mutluluğunun görüntüsünde.. Ay yine de anlatamadım :( Ha bu arada da helal olsun sana, ne sabırmış kardeşim :)
