Beautiful, there are some things.

Uncomfortable the 80% of the time unless you have a place or a set like the muppets, but... we are not that pro. LOL

I can see that the mic there is the one connected and recording, I can say that the mic is for you, not the puppet, so, make a prop for the puppet and put the real one under the desk, so your voice will sound perfect.

Do you use a monitor?, I mean... a tv screen under the desk, so you can see your self, that help a lot, also when you have guests, so you can watch the interaction and react to the guest actions. I used to use a really small tv for the camera, if it where a webcam, I put the computer under the desk so I control everything down there, and if you can´t, try to play with mirrors.

I'm not trying to bother, just give some ideas and help Wink

Always love tips and suggestions!  May not enjoy critique, but understand it lol :D  With as many false starts as I have had, taking all the advice I can get Smiley

You know, I immediately regretted putting the mic up there.  Did it to see how it would look on camera.  The desk is an aquarium stand that I have removed the door from, so there is a perfect spot for the mic when filming.  That opening also allows me to view the monitor, though moving it is a good idea to give me better vision.  Or I could purchase a VGA to USB adapter and set up a second monitor. 

The part that I am dreading right now, other than setting up interviews, is cutting a slit in the suit jacket to give me access to JD's hand.  That jacket is perfect and I am afraid I will mess it up too much.

I agree. You could get another mic prop for DJ. The second take, the desk looks better. If you have enough space to move your camera back and bring your desk away from the curtain would help to make it less uncomfortable and less risk of moving the curtain. Good lighting and camera image...coming on well. If you put your mic below the desk you will get better audio, but you risk sounding like you are in a box. We get that a lot. so if that happens put lots of absorbent material like foam or blankets around the mike to cut he reverb of the enclosed space

Thanks for the tips Smiley  I did this quick promo today after putting up a sign.  For this one, the mic is closer to me and I realized that I wont be touching the curtain while filming.  I do have to play with the lights a bit more, but I think its coming together.  Regarding the foam, I have tons of scrap from puppet building, does that type work?

Did a request video for FaceBook, looking for some test interviews.  First test using the hand, though I probably wont use it as much.  First, I can't get him very high to keep my arm out of the shot, and by my position I get my head in the shot as well.  Will find a way to prop the hand on the desk I think.  I am also happy with the lighting.

Seems a little bit uncomfortable.

Maybe you can make the interviews in a screen like "Space ghost" so you don't have to worry about the place and make the necessary  things to be comfortable.

That's the plan.  They will be done online through Skype, then I will either do split screen or be in a smaller screen.

Intro for the series:


Working on lining up my first interview.  After that, will have to get creative until I can line up a few more.  Probably interview my various puppets that will take part in the show.  Ready to get started!

Maybe for the intro you can take some more shots, close ups, change camera view, different angles. So it will look more dynamic.

I like Pluto new puppet.

hmm...good point.  I will probably use that one until I film a few more segments and swap them out.  The trick is trying to show everything in 5 seconds.

Yeah, I am enjoying Pluto.  It is a new line from Folkmanis Puppets, and they also have Mickey, Minnie, and Donald.

I saw the page and I just see Mickey, but they are fantastic. I hope to see Pluto soon in your videos.

Pretty neat puppet. I like the simplicity of the mech for the ears. Never really thought of air power for such an action.
