Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Hey check this video out, "thank you's"


Hey Critters;
    Thanks for watching our new video, got some great comments. I probably 
wont get the next one out until after Dec. so again thanks.
    Also thanks again for all your war stories this past weekend, it really 
made us feel better and part of a large and understanding family.
    Regarding Brad's question about the audience noise, I went back & forth 
on if I should keep it. I decided to go with it mostly because I wanted to 
show that this program isn't "scary". Believe it or not we have a lot of 
sponsors who wont even think of having this show because They think it might 
frighten the children, (like we would make a show that would do that). So I 
kept the noises to reassure our customers that it is a fun show. It's the 
same reason there is no shot of The Headless Horseman in the video, other 
than the title. (and I really wanted to show him, his neck glow red and the 
eyes of the horse does too). So I will keep it as it is for now but Thanks 
again for the comment.
     Mathieu, yes we use a prerecorded soundtrack  for our performances. 
Michelle plays the voice of Katrina, and I provided a couple of scary noises 
during the show. The reason we do that is because I am not that confinant in 
doing live voices, ( I am more a puppet builder than preformer) also we know 
a lot of good actors up here who are better at voices than I am. Also  we 
like to mix in all sorts of sound effects &  music in our show and we can't 
do that live. Michele and I alway argue about its pros & cons of this.( I 
know for a fact she would love to do the voices live, but I am to much of a 
chicken)  Funny thing is when we have done TV adds or promos I am fine doing 
the vioces, I guess it must be stage fright .
    Well I have gone on way to long so see ya, and again thanks all of you 
for the support.

Fantastic!
Really great humor, I love your horse!

One suggestion, on most of the performance clips, the audience noise is 
probably taking away more than it adds. If this isn't entirely in the can it 
might be great to re-record the dialog and lay it over.
