I've been writing about puppets lately for an online arts magazine artsmashri.com.
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
Have always been, but recently meeting the Czech puppeteer mentioned below, and his very enchanting marionettes and his seeing his adult plays, Shakespeare and such.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
Dusan Petran of Yorick's Marionette theater. Also Phil Huber. Petran lived nearby for a time, but he has since relocated to France where they are interested in producing a film of his based on Ibsen plays.
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
Something fairy-like with very huge, elegant and powerful wings.
More About Me:
I write soundtracks (residing on Project Opus, below) and have a film credit or two. I would like to write puppet film soundtracks.
Also I would love to drive caravan for a puppet tour called the "Haines 2 Dream Tour," following the tour path of the Haineses during first Depression.
