I'm not making money off of the crafts that i do. So, money really doesn't push me to build puppets. So, for me, "wow i have this bill to pay... i have to start building again" or "i need to get a gig going this week so i can have some extra cash for the cruise i'm going on at the end of the month." For me, i build because an idea comes to me. But sometimes that one idea isn't enough to keep me motivated to finishing the project at hand. So, when i say, "i gotta get this little guy done" i pop in a DVD as i'm finishing up my characters. What Dvds do i turn to? Typically Follow that Bird works for me. The Sesame crew is a crazy group, and to me, more enjoyable. It keeps the kid in me alive. The characters i tend to create attract the child in people, but i gear them towards Teen age humor. So, I like the bright colored characters and happy moods... although i do have one REALLY angry character... not to be confused with a Grouch, but my lil guy flips out and just becomes so aggravated with all the crazy characters that live around him. Hes the "i just want to be left alone and relax, but if i turn my back for a sec, they'll blow up the world" and they probably could. The Muppet movie is a 2nd. This would have to be my 2nd fav puppet movie, again, its the characters. Where as i've always felt the Muppets are more so grown up... Which shouldn't be a shock since that was the goal audience Jim was reaching out to. More grown up, but they're crazy. And i love origin films. No, this may not be the Official story, but its neat how they come together in this film. The least watch dvds would depend on the time of year. Winter, i may pop in Christmas Carol. Summer, i may pop in Treasure Island or Big Bird in China is another. Not saying i go with the weather.
