I like the material you used for the chicken feathers.
Okay, seriously, great looking chicken.
Not so seriously...
(and with that all too familiar to me Wiggles DVD in the background!)
If I am doing a solo project, I tend to fid inspitration for my scripts only the night before the appearance...so I stick with the puppets I have and go from there.
Thank you guys very much.
Which episode of Wiggles is that? I thought I'd seen them all. I *have* seen every episode of Lazy Town. Those wacky Icelanders...
Ok update on progress:
Turns out I only had two hours yesterday, so I didn't get facial features on red before I hit tech. I also need to attach the finished chicken head to the almost finished chicken body. We had enough done to have a smooth rehearsal for the chicken show & a not-quite-as-smooth tech for the wolf show. I think the major issue there is that we've not been able to do any rehearsals with stand-in puppets due to my partner having bronchitis all week. I'm actually surprised he made it to tech.
BUT this means I have *all* day to get just a few things done. Wheee!
It looks like a DVD featuring Captain Feathersword and his crew sailing around the world and singing songs about those places.
Wiggles and Thomas the Tank Engine are my 2 1/2 year old's favorites. He is also enjoying "Charlie & Lola" these days.
But enough parent talk!
I am a dingus & thought you said spider pirate because its a song in the wiggles. Not enough sleep. too many puppets....I was expecting to run into Captain Feathersword singing about spider pirates. What do I get instead? Greek dances.
Yeah, but you're a darn cute dingus!
Did you finish everything up in time?
I do everything last minute. I work better under pressure. Or maybe that's just what I've convinced myself so I have a good excuse for procrastination...
I *did* get everything done in time! And even though our tech rehearsal was clunky, our shows were both wonderful. Tonight's show went over even better than last night's (Saturday crowds are always bigger & a tad more inebriated). I know Friday's less-smooth show was recorded, maybe I'll be able to put a clip up on youtube someday.
I finally took pictures of the last three puppets.
Here's a link to the photo set
There are a lot of things that I would have done differently if I had more time...not use a green bobbin, for instance.
So this week I've been doing something called...sleeping...it's amazing, you should try it. I need to gear up for our next slam next week. Hopefully things work out better this time!
thanks guys, for all of your support!
I've gotta say, I really do think your cute Chicken puppets are the best thing since sliced bread!
Wow ! Just linked onto your thread and am so impressed with your creations ! Your extremely talented, especially since the puppets have character to them, as they smile. Hard to bring personality to cloth and without any movement to them to view. Great Job ! It lead me to seek your flickr file and view others, and hello I am roxie in Peoria , hi !
Wow, Roxie! Thanks!
Peoria? So close! Have you been to the Great AZ Puppet theater?
Oh also, we just filmed the show we did for a small film festival, so I should have at least something age inappropriate up soon. I'll post a link here a little later. (later today? later this week? I like to keep people guessing..)
We're done editing, now we have some massive ADR to take care of, but I wanted to get something up onto youtube (itchy trigger finger, I guess). So I slapped up one of the angles of Little Red Riding Hood's Monologue.
It's a mostly-tame bit of our mature-audience show. Just before this scene a title card is shown Resolution #1: No Soliciting Children.
Bible! Haha, I think Red Riding Hood has a wolf fetish! Really funny!
Yeah, I suppose I shoudl have given the premise before...I've got post-editing mush-brain.
the story is about the big bad wolf who decides he's going to become the big benevolent wolf. Resolutions: No Soliciting Children, No Cross Dressing & Keep Kosher. So he's on a walk in the forest & is greatly tempted in all areas....I won't give away the ending. Hopefully we'll post the directors cut to youtube within a few weeks.
***I Had to take it down!*** I guess that's one of the rules of the film festival...After it screens, then I can put it back up.
Yoiks! I was too slow again! Now I'll have to wait or feed the flux capacitor or something.
If anyone here requests to "be my friend' on youtube, I can set it so all of my close, personal friends can have a peek. I think you can find my profile via the link above.
