Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Hey check this video out, thanks Mary

I just saw the 6 min. You tube clip of LofSHollow. Put the best, most
seductive parts at the beginning to try to get them to not click away. I
would have  clicked away had you not wanted some feed back from this puppet
line. You tube and shooting a live show with video doesn't lend itself to
good quality images-- as you know. At the outset, Light saturation and
whobbly manipulation is accentuated. then about 4 min. in I think, both are
better-- it is much clearer to look at-- so use the best footage first-- i
can't accent that enough.
The how-to talking part is very nice and never gets scrutinized so much on
these demos.
i liked it, although I thought it may have been too long (but i don't know
to whom you were sending it).
good luck, I hope this helps.

"This is a fascinating piece which uses the visual-music aspect of puppetry
to make images as puppet theatre can at it's best."
