Cheers pagestep007, 'establishing shots'! It sounds obvious now you point it out! haha Thanks for the high praise indeed, I shall try to keep the standard as best as I can! Smiley As long as my arms hold up that is!! I had two gigs this weekend, so you would have thought being a drummer I would be able to maintain a reasonable stamina for puppet performing, but my shoulders are killing me today. I have no idea how everyone does this professionally, I have to keep stopping for fear my arms gonna fall off!!! My slight confession is that my actual job for the last 10 years has been as a Graphic Designer, so that's kind of a cheat on my part. As for the new episodes, we are nearly finished on the first of the three, and hope to get it out before Christmas. The outer Space idea was fun for building sets, and I'm really looking forward to giving it a go! Fingers crossed my arms hold out long enough to get them done! Again, thanks for taking an interest and following my progress, it's great to get notes and feedback from such a wonderful and friendly community. I'm going to shut up now, cos I've run out of red wine! spin

I have to agree with Philip, you really are doing a great job!  I do have one question for you. What is "Being totally skint" mean?

Skint = broke. As in, I have no money. It's a British-ism I think.

Thanks Na!  I kind of thought that may be the answer but was not sure. Also wondered if it would be someone would say after a night of drinking. Smiley

You need to watch more BBC programs Wink
I'm sure there's appropriate phrasing for a night of drinking, but off the top of my head can't think of anything.

Thank You Shawn, it's getting more addictive the more I do! (puppets, not the alcohol!) I do forget sometimes that my British vernacular ticks may not translate! Skint is broke; as NA said, he's quite correct there. Smiley I'll try and avoid straight up Cockney Rhyming slang! (Drunk would be 'Brahms Liszt!' haha)

I do watch quite a bit of BBC America. Some of the shows I feel like I need subtitles. Smiley Then again right now I am in Nashville TN and find it a bit hard to follow the accents of some of the locals.

Because our local government-run channel is often underfunded (and therefore produces at most 2-4 local shows a year) we get a lot of BBC and other shows. -- You have to remember that until digital came along we only had 5 channels. I'm pretty well versed on the common British-isms, all except for the rhyming slang mentioned above.

And we've had so much American TV here in comparison to Aussie - the government regulates that you have to have 2% of air time as Australian TV, not including news, so programmers buy mostly American as it's cheaper - that when an Australian appears on an American show, I notice the Aussie accent and not the US. Although, most Aussie actors learn American accents purely so they can perform in American shows.

I do love myself a Cockney accent Smiley

Ah yeah, a bit of Cockney does go a long way... Would you Adam and Eve it me old China, have a butchers at the time. I should have been up the apples and pears to bed hours ago... haha. I'm not convinced anyone outside of old vaudeville stage shows actually speaks like that any more!  spin

Just watched the 'How To Cure Hiccups | The Stuffs' haha, love it! The puppet quality is really high as well. There are two kids who drink in my local pub, that look JUST like those two!! I may never be able to look at them in the same way again!!

Probably the last blog entry of this year, so it's a tad seasonal!

I came to the party late here, but I've really enjoyed discovering everything in this community and being part of it. I want to thank everyone for their support and comments, it's a real yard stick of quality all the work that I see here in puppets and stuff. I'm looking forward to 2013, (seeing as the world didn't actually end, so I'm gonna HAVE to pay that credit card bill after all) See everyone next year for more felt and fun. Merry Christmas everybody, and to all those puppets reading this: Say hello to your human counterparts, as without them, you'd have nowhere to live!!

ps. I liked the visd4kidstv bus video, someone else who knows how to use green screen properly! New Years resolution is to get a handle on that!! Can't get enough of the Timmy puppet, he's great!
