I’m working on a new series of interviews here at FleeceHEAD. The idea is pretty simple to start. Asking 4 basic questions to all of the puppet builders, performers, and creators out there in cyberspace that want to participate. I can’t expect everyone to reply and surely my emails will hit the Trash Bin along the way. But there are enough people out there interested in
For now I’m calling it 4 Foam Fingers.
Any of you foam and fleece loving pals out there know that’s relatable to the average number of fingers a puppet generally has. It also keeps it short and allows the interviewee to expand in their own creative direction.
This is not only reserved just for the big names in the industry. My goal is to use this series to help inspire others searching the web for the basics. One of the things I never found myself when looking online years ago when first going down the puppetry road was the emotional side of the craft. Sure, there was plenty of “glue A to B and voila you have a round head” tutorials out there. I will never post that kind of content to FleeceHEAD because so many already do a fantastic job at that. 4 Foam Fingers is more of a Q&A format with people in the industry.
That story behind the foam door is what I’m looking for here. If you’re reading this after getting my email checking the website out, help me inspire someone and join us for 4 Foam Fingers.
**UPDATE** Amazing responses so far. We have already quite a few fantastic people both well known and new to the puppetry scene participating in 4 Foam Fingers. I’ll wait to give a list / schedule until we’re a little further along in the series development but this is an awesome way to start! 4 Foam Fingers is taking shape, literally!
