Citations sur Kumak, the Sleepy Hunter [en anglais]

« Audrey [McLaren] and Alma [Duncan] did every scrap of work themselves, from writing the script and making the puppets to doing the photography and finishing [...]. Aside from enough money to meet the costs of film and technical equipment and to keep the wolf from the door day to day, their main contribution was boundless enthusiasm and unflagging determination. They also contributed the technical 'know how' they had acquired as employees of the National Film Board prior to the day, over a year and a half ago, that they resigned their jobs and formed themselves into Dunclaren Productions of Ottawa, Canada. »
-- Reginald Hardy (source)

« In [Kumak, the Sleepy Hunter], [Alma] Duncan used masks to animate her puppets. By creating papier mâché masks, Duncan was able to alter facial expressions simply by changing masks when necessary. Such a device created a fast and efficient way to alter the characters' moods. »
-- Jaclyn Meloche (source)
