Some of My Puppetry Background
Q: Why do you write puppet scripts? What motivates you?
I am a playwright and a ventriloquist. I write plays as a means to come up with better material for my own works. Play writing is a great way to get a feel for characters and dialogue.
Q: Tell us about your church or puppet organisation.
I am independent and it is a joy to perform for audiences of all ages with some kind of moral component involved.
Q: How did you get started in puppets and what attracted you to this area?
My attraction to puppets began when I was a small child. My mother purchased a book for me titled 'Puppet Making' from a book sale at Montgomery Ward. As a wee one, the book never left my side. I eventually started checking out library books that had short plays for children's puppet shows. One was an English folktale called "Johnny Cake." I did my own rendition called "The Buttermilk Ghost." I cut out my own puppet theatre out of cardboard and handcrafted a little ghost puppet as well.
Q: Where does your inspiration come from to write puppet scripts?
I am typically inspired by Will Vinton Claymation and vintage candy commercials for settings, ideas, and character development.
Q: What advice would you give to someone just starting out in puppetry?
Have unique ideas and take lots of time to practice the manipulation skills. Many people will focus on the kind of material you have, as opposed to your technical skills. I say both areas matter.
Q: Who are your favourite puppet characters and what do you like about them?
Any of Dan Horn's puppets. They are all memorable with unique personalities and voices.
Q: What are the most important qualities in great puppet scripts?
And I couldn't stress too much-HAVE YOUR OWN UNIQUE IDEAS! Don't steal, don't try to be something you aren't. Just remember, Jim Henson and Edgar Bergen already happened. Take a new avenue.
Q: What would you do if you were a puppet?
As long as I'm a puppet and not a dummy, I could live with it.
