Thanks for your thoughts.
I guess it is not a surprise that the director is a puppeteer  
himself, but I agree, the band sequences are not really that  
special.  Problems with time and money as usual, so the band couldn't  
go to the outside location, blah blah blah. Glad you thought the  
puppet parts were compelling. I was deliriously tired when we shot  
the exterior stuff, so I don't love it. Brings up the issue of  
whether the builder really should be the performer...

Thanks again
Greg
