    Starting this week Puppeteers Unite will be releasing a beginners puppet building series for free. For more information check out our website.

    PS- It is based on the Project Puppet Roly Pattern

    Its based on the Roly pattern, meaning its a pattern you made based on the roly pattern? How is it different form the Roly pattern?

    LOL it is the roly pattern- I may offer some different ways of "skinning the cat" but we are using the Roly Puppet Pattern to create a monster puppet. It is a beginners "course" so I'm going to be covering the basics. I have everything in a rough edit and have been contemplating whether to add in more indepth stuff or to keep it simple for the sake of time and peoples pocket book. For example, I have a very complex mouth grip system that I shot for the series but I may do an easier version for the video and keep the more difficult version for another "How to" video at the end of the series.

    It is very difficult to create a video that won't bore people- especially those who know their stuff ;) But I think if I keep it as a beginners series then that will really help with what to focus on and what not to cover.

    Hope this helps. :D

    Is the Project Puppet guy okay with this?

    I think he would be ok with it because he says to the people planning to makle it to buy a pattern.It realy promotes his patterns to me,seeing the puppet he made,it made me want to buy the pattern.
    Thanks for the video tutorials, awsome work by the way!

    Why would it matter if he was ok with it?

    Its not like the pattern is being given out, its just a beginners guide on puppets and the OP just happens to be using a PP pattern. Same deal if he were using the pattern from any number of sources.

    Still, it wouldnt hurt to see if he is ok with it . . . . .

    I checked with everyone involved (Project Puppet) and have been given the green light.

    The only downfall about this video series is that I have to work with Puppets...those folk are a demanding bunch. LOL

    This looks like a great idea! Good resource for starters!

    Re: palette, I noticed in the promo it looks like you use rapid rivets to make your palettes. Is that right?

    I'll be covering a couple of different ways to "skin the cat" in regards to mouth plates/grips. :)

    First video release soon!
    Sorry everyone. I got back from work and thought that it would take about 2 hours tops to transfer the file to Youtube only to find it'll take 10 hours! Augh! I started it at 6pm and it should be done at 3am.

    its 5am here... wheres this video? :insatiable:

    I have to say, its REALLY cool that you're doing this for everyone. I'm not a beginner, however i find new ways to build every time i read/watch videos on another builder's experience. I find that everyone adds their own methods and its really awesome to see how everyone does their way of building.

    5 hours more to go

    Stupid Youtube- It timed out last night so I had to re-upload it. The first video I found kinda boring. I go through the supplies you need and give a homework assignment. I have to keep reminding myself that it is a beginners course LOL The second and third videos are really good though.

    I'm always my hardest critic. The video should be up soon. Sorry.

    Next week I'll have to download it starting Sunday night I think, so it'll be on time.
