Buddy Big Mountain replied to Rob's discussion Getting started in the group Ventriloquists Anonymous
"Greetings Rob, What might help is to be seen a bit more. You may have to volunteer at a few venues that will give you the maximum exposure to the people that would use your talents and hire you."

"Well I can't make any more excuses, I have to get to work and build Betty, The Jingle Dress Dancer. Even though I don't have a sewing machine with me, long story, I will be building her all by hand like some of my first marionettes. So far…"

Buddy Big Mountain commented on Westpuppets's group Works in Progress
"I started working on this and it was looking good. I showed it to my wife and she said it was too small. I disagreed and proved her right. After a quick addition to the head I realized the small head looked better, but too small. So, now I do not…"

What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
I have enjoyed puppetry since I was a kid, marionette shows in school and puppet shows at the parks I worked at with my family. It became more than a kid thing when I started watching Jim Henson and The Great Favog (?) on Saturday Night Live. Puppetry became a job when I toured with a show in 1976. I trained myself by watching Sesame Street and it became a passion while I was working with The Trotter Brothers in 1978.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
Grover from Sesame Street was one of my favorites for a long time and then I started working with Windell P. Snodgrasz.
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
I like Clifford from The Muppet Show. He is the first puppet I know of that has my given name but I think I would like to be ...
More About Me:
I have been active with puppetry since 1976 while performing hand puppets and body puppets for Phillip Morris. I learned how to work marionettes while with the Trotter Brothers in 1978. I learned how to build and make patterns from Betty Lehnus of the Trotters. I started out as puppeteer that did ventriloquism and now I am a ventriloquist that does puppetry.
