Title: New Puppet: Cedric the Sunflower
Post by: mrbumblepants on July 05, 2015, 10:19:32 pm
Cadaver Dave has a few more videos up, and I'm starting a series teaching about the varieties of pumpkins available. Still working on lighting issues, so I haven't posted any here in a bit.

However, my husband and I just finished a new version of Cedric the Sunflower, who started life as an old Dollar Tree toy, and I want to show him off.

Cedric's voice is cute. I was confused about the voice in the distances at first thought it was some background noise. Then realized that it was an off camera interview type thing.  Might want to use double mics or maybe you could re-record the second voice in pre production and over lay it on top of the original.

Unfortunately, though the sound did work when we tested it the first time, that time it didn't work. I'm wondering if I'd had the mike turned off and Cedric's voice was loud enough in the first attempts to be caught.

Maybe next weekend I can play with it and try to redo the sound. We will probably be using this approach in the future, so it'd be good to have a solution on hand.

Thanks! The flower pot is fun, and was really easy. We just used a leftover thin pot, cut the bottom off, and then glued the puppet inside. Easily replaceable if anything happens!

Cedric had his real life debut at a children's camp playing a merchant character. He was a big hit!
