    im amazed every day with the talent / creativity and moxy of this forum!!

    has anyone ever thought about doing some sort of shot for shot remake/homage of either one of the muppet movies...or an episode of the muppet show using our puppet renditions...and puppeting talent... it would be such a celebration of everything we all love... and easily be the coolest experience ever...

    imagine if one or two hundred strong got together with expertise in the various fields needed... its just a shame we dont all live in the same small town...lol

    anyways...just dreaming...

    but ofcourse thats dangerous... my last dream became a successful puppet theater...lol.. ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY COMING IN NOV!!...still loving every second of it!!

    Does sound like a fun project. Only a matter of figuring out what to film with the characters we have, and how to film it. Perhaps if we all filmed against a kinda greenscreen ( .....or bluescreen if you're finding it uneasy being green ;) ) and compile the characters that way. I've got a little experience in animation and compositing myself, so wouldn't be unfamiliar with the process.

    It does sound cool, but kinda difficult b/c everyone here is located in different parts of the USA and the world. I think that recreating one of their music videos would be easier than a whole TMS episode. And congrats on your almost one year anniversary!

    There's a Star Wars project like this -- where the film was spilt up into 60 second chunks and strung together. It's very cool and I would totally want to participate. I vote for the Muppet Movie -- it's truly the most iconic of the series. I'll see if I can find the link to the Star Wars one -- and we could open up to puppeteers and non-puppeteers alike to make a really fascinating mosaic when completed.

    That sounds like a lot of fun. I'd be game for doing somethign in it if we ever got it off the ground. Do you think people could colaborate on even the small chunks? Like maybe someone who doesn't have the set up to do a whole bit could lend their talents to someone else who does?

    Maybe if we did a cover of Movin' Right Along, with each of our characters running in from the left, singing their bit, and running out on the right. Any background you want, any character, and we can compile it into one full video! Thoughts?

    That'd be cool. At the very least it might be a little bit more managable. And which of us hasn't wanted to sing that song with other fans? :):o
    Maybe if it went well we could do a a series of songs, maybe increase the skill level as we went with it.

    One upon a time on Muppet Central, there was a proposed project to do a fan vid of Happiness Hotel. Participants were assigned [I think] parts of the song and one central person was going to edit everything into the final video. I always wondered what happened to that. It seemed like a fun idea.

    I think Happiness Hotel would be a better choice, since there are a LOT of parts. It's really the only song I can think of that's an ensemble piece -- maybe the Great Muppet Caper opening or closing credit sequence? (In a Movie)

    I don't know theither of those songs but I'd be willing to learn it for something like this.
    Do we really wanna do this or are we still throwing ideas around at this point?

    That would be awsome!

    But until that time, maybe we could film the segments and then send them to a predetermined editor who could assemble them and smooth out the edges a bit.
