This has been an interesting year for me creatively. A few years ago we started Death By Puppets and it was almost entirely a series of short films for youtube, but filming and editing takes time and coordination and somewhere along the way this year we ran out of films to put up, but we didn’t stop creating. In the last two years we’ve become as much a “perform live” group as we are a “film for the internet” group, and because of that I’ve had less stuff to show you all here.
We’ve performed at the last two Dragon Con puppet slams, and numerous other slams here in Atlanta. We’ve also teamed up with other puppeteers to perform at other conventions around town.
As spring gave way to summer this year my family moved from an overstuffed house we’d been living in for over a decade, into a new place with more space *and* a whole workshop/puppet studio room in the basement. I’ve done relatively little building in the workshop so far, but I turned one corner into the unofficial Death By Puppets studio and we’ve started up filming again.
I wanted to share a few pictures of my work space and the trailer for the next Death By Puppets web series: “Tim Vortex: the Last Spacemaster!”
Tim Vortex season #1 starts tomorrow. Check out the trailer now and come back for more.
