I made this in a day (puppets and all) based on a recording from an open mic. There should be a blog post about my process of crowd work in the next days.
In this ep we hit all the hard realities of our fantasies. It’s recorded from Podstravaganza at KidSuper fashion store: a 5 hour recording session!
So if you didn’t see the first mic test puppet movie on the podcast feed, check it out now.
I have made one puppet movie before this for Gil William’s movie. I called it the Dimension Beast and in the movie it is called KindEye. http://ourherocomic.tumblr.com/post/128846342438/enjoy-a-new-choppedandscrewed
However after building up a ton of these recordings I call Mic Tests ( improvised spur of the moment recordings with a mic I keep on me at all time) I decided to make puppet movies for all the scenes.
The second motivation for this is a good habit of mine for art making that ended up having a critical mass tipping point: I take junk people don’t want.
It’s a known practice amoungst artists to save unwanted things to repurpose them for the art. However, as I mostly work in stop motion, my scale has prooved too small to use all my supplies. So in the interest of having a reasonable and organized collection of supplies in my studio I decided to make puppets.
The puppets larger scale allow me to get rid of more of the material.
BUT I love things like this. Practical need creates art. It’s always the best result for me. It’s motivation beyond regular art. It needs to be made. I hope yall enjoy the films to come!
