FurCon 2016

For those of you that attended our puppet video workshop- Thank You! I will be posting the videos in a couple of weeks. Keep an eye on this site for the posting date.

Further Confusion 2016

WooHOO! Heading to Further Confusion in one more day! Plenty of puppet stuff planned including a panel on video puppetry. We’ll also be filming a video project about furry conventions- of course with puppets. Our new puppet Oliver will play the newbie at his first con, Chaco Coyote and Moonshine Raccoon will be his ‘mentors'; will this work out or will it turn into a fuzzy disaster? We’ll have to see.

If you see us filming stop on over and say hello-  you might end up in a video.

Vlogging at Further Confusion Picnic 2015

So,  we’re starting a new puppet project;  Vlogging with puppets.  We have a couple of ideas about format but,  one of the things we’ll be doing is fan interviews at meetups and conventions.  Our first vlog is below, the sound and video quality is a little rough but,  we have some new equipment on the way to (hopefully) fix that.

 

Puppeteering at Biggest Little Furcon May 2015

Here is the first video of our puppet walk-arounds at BLFC. This was our first performance using a GoPro for recording. The GoPro was mounted on a head band which really didn’t work as well as we would have liked. We’ve since acquired a chest mount that looks like it will be MUCH better. We’re also going to add a wireless mike for the second puppeteer so the sound quality will be better.

Part 2 will be published soon.

Back from BLFC 2015

We’re back from BLFC and had a totally awesome time! One of the best cons we’ve been to and that’s saying a lot since we’ve been going to cons for close to 20 years. We had the puppets out all three days, they were super popular and brought a smile to many faces. Our Saturday panel on social puppeteering went quite well- everyone had tons of fun playing with the puppets at the end of the panel.

We have lots of videos! We’ll post them as quickly as we can.

BLFC puppet activities

Due to unforeseen circumstances we will not be performing a puppet show at BLFC this year. However, we will be there- with puppets! We’ll be doing walk around with our characters throughout the con and will be presenting a panel on social puppeteering on Saturday.
