I have been extremely forunate lately, because I have been able to meet some brilliant puppeteers. Through some long and twisted connection, I actually got to meet Noel MacNeal and see him perform! How awesome! It was at a filming session for Sesame , nonetheless. I have some awesome pictures, but alas, I have been told not to show them on the web. Sorry! Anyway, the whole day was a great inspiration. After that I knew I was growing up to be a puppeteer.
(PS- The segment they were filming is supposed to air next season. I'll post again when I see it. )
