Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers and Lambchop. I have always been fascinated with puppets. Stop motion animation has played a very large part of my puppet building. Not only do I love to build characters but I love creating the world they live in.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
I have quite a few and they extend into stop motion masters. Julie Taymor, Jim Henson, Tim Burton, Henry Selick, Rankin/Bass, Nick Park and Stan Winston.
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
Camilla the Chicken, because Camilla is my real name and who wouldn't want to be Gonzo's sidekick?
More About Me:
I love building! Puppets, sets and relationships (yup you build those too!)
do u have any stop-motion animation videos online? i'm also very interested in animation and puppetry too. right now, i'm finishing a rock movie with rock puppets and the whole thing is green screened with drawn backgrounds.
I don't generally post behind the scenes shots, but I may put a few up once my company's new website is together.
Thanks for the kind words. I think I remember your mermaid puppet from the Project Puppet competition? Great stuff. I need to have a play with one of their patterns one day.
