I never place anything as a set. The camera sees it in the end so you may as well look through the camera and have another person moving the scenery until you get it in the right place to look good on film. If you move to a different angle and it looks a bit boring, you can change things a little. You can’t take them away, but you can alter the perspective of things to each other and the mind accepts it. The puppet is the predominant thing on the screen and the background is dressing for that.
