    I liked it as well. And that song's been stuck in my head since I listened to it yesterday. ;)

    Ha, greatness thanks! I've got to credit my fiancé Camille for the tune... she's good with busting out a catchy melody. :) I just helped out with playing instruments and whatnot.

    Btw, to add to the shameless self promotion, if you're interested in hearing more of her/our music, you can find it here:

    Quick question.

    How do you make a mouth like you did for the monster? I've been trying to do something like that for a while now.

    The body is a giant half-oval of foam that I cut a slit across the front for the mouth, and I glued a long piece of foam along the bottom lip to give him an underbite. The upper side of the mouth plate is a piece of hard plastic. There is no lower piece, so it takes two hands to operate the mouth. Hope that makes sense!

    That would explain it! I was trying to make it work with only one hand.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I have the song stuck in my head too. :)
  10. Really great video. I just did the same thing for a friend who sings kids songs, but they spent about 1% of the time setting things up that you did.

    There's a couple videos showing the making of this fine film and you get to see how the monster puppet looks behind the stage:
