June 4th, 2009

June 3rd, 2009

Here is a couple of links to share for all of you who are interested in puppetry or just puppets: TANK RIOT The podcast TANK RIOT has a episode dedicated to the history and works of Jim Henson. It's not highly detailed, yet it still manages to share a good general history of the artist. It also has a few factoids that I was not aware of. It's a brilliant and entertaining podcast. Well worth your time. Go here to download the episode. PUPPET BUILDING 101 Do you want to know what a script for the Sci Fi Channel looks like? Well after digging around on the intertubes I have found one. It's for the film DEVIL ON THE MOUNTAIN which aired on the channel as SASQUATCH MOUNTAIN . Here is the link to a pdf version of the script. (big tip of the hat to Sci Fi Scripts ). If anyone is interested in writing for the Sci Fi channel check out their screenplay structure found here . For anyone looking to get into puppetry or just curious as to how to make your own foam puppet; Puppetvision has just what you need. Andrew of Puppetvision is offering a nine week online Puppet Building 101 course which promises to teach you how to design, pattern, and build a foam puppet. The fee is $89.00 which is actually a good price considering the fact that you will get one-on-one personal mentoring, instructions, and video tutorials which will help you gain a very excellent skill in the field of puppetry. Well worth a look and the price. For more details go here .

Also if anyone out there has any links to any more Sci Fi Channel scripts drop me an email at kidschlocko (at) yahoo.

WALKING CANES May 20th, 2009

I came across this cool website while searching for a walking cane and was in awe of how many types there are and the variety to choose from. This place even has a replica of two of House's now famous canes. There is even spy canes , the kind with the hidden blades or even a flask. You can also find one with a skull topper - perfect for the next movie villain. But as a bit or a warning, unless you are prepared to build one on your own, some of these canes come with a hefty price tag.

Go over to Lowe's website to see a amazing pic of the work in progress .
