Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Puppet Design Collaboration


I am open to this idea. This may not be what you're looking for, but I
wonder if it is possible to push the collaboration a step further.
Instead of simply creating what the other collaborator designs, might
it be possible to collaborate on design ideas and come to a general
agreement on concept as a team and from those concepts have each
collaborator make the puppet? It may be interesting to see how one
design manifests through different collaborators creations. This may
also allow for a bigger stretch from what each collaborator normally
works with since each shares the burden and 'risk' of design.

Again, this may not be what you are looking for but I thought I would
throw it out as an idea in the spirit of collaboration!
