This was an extremely fun, well-paid, and momentous day: I was performing (and lending some of my own puppets) my own puppets in a music video for a well-known band,I worked with a lot of my fellow Atlanta puppeteers, I learned about working with fire on camera, and I met two of my best friends, Shane Morton and Madeline Brumby, who I would go on to perform with in their Silver Scream Spook Show.
Now, the video and song may not be to everyone’s taste; I’ll warn you right off the bat. VERY METAL,VERY LOUD!
However, I can assure you the members of the Atlanta, Georgia metal band Mastodon, especially their drummer, Brann Dailor, were really terrific to us. I had worked with Brann on yet another puppet project I’ll talk about later, and it was a grueling experience, yet he was as professional and friendly as could be.
Here is the video!
Next,I’ll show you some screencaps of what I did, and puppets that are mine:
