This is it!



So....this is what I worked on that was all super-secret. Released mere moments ago (I was the 12th view!) and YAY!

For those of you who don't know, it's a Canadian band called the Barenaked Ladies and they're not bare or naked...or ladies. But they do sing some pretty rad music & they released a children's album called Snacktime. I got to go to Chicago in a fancy airplane and ride in a fancy car to a fancy apartment in Boy's Town. Then I got to ride a fancy train and a fancy bus to help finish the puppets up, then I got to sit under a fancy table & play with puppets for 19 fancy hours! FANCY! (Thank you Moxie, for bringing that word back to the forefront of my life)

One of the most wonderful experiences! I loved every minute! I got to work with some amazing puppeteers, as well! WOW. Noah Ginex is the man responsible for most everything you see on screen. From construction and animation to editing. He had a good set of folks around him that helped him work on a fairly tight budget (when it comes to puppets) and an even tighter schedule to make it work.

I could go on for ages. I won't.

I'm the butterfly! And a lot of the owl. I'm the frog. I'm the possum when they're gathered around the stump. And when the flying squirrel is in front of the foliage then I'm the fox in the background. On "knows not where he's from" I'm the otter shaking his head. When the piano is higher than everything else, then I'm the possum (although Bill did a much better job on him than I did)

Also, if you look in the background at the scenery there is a tiny yellow rubber chicken (from the chicken catapult gun at archie mcphee). Next to him is a green army man, but you can hardly see him.

Rocki,

It would have been awesome to meet them, but I didn't. We just played the song over and over in a studio. The puppet builder (Noah Ginex) got to see them the weekend before I was there. They were at a book store doing a promo & he brought them all of their puppets (some unfinished) They got a pretty rad picture of all of the guys with their respective animals!

Rocki's Rock 'n Beads said...

Oh well, at least you were close to them, sort of ;)

Happy 4th to you!

Soapylove said...

Wow wow!! The video was so great - the puppets all looked fab! What a super fun opportunity. You're rockin' the puppet scene! :)

staceyrebecca said...
