My way into the puppet/sculptur/character business brought me through the world of puppet theatre (and i still go there sometimes for adventures).
And years ago i wasn’t only on the crafting side, i was also creating shows and performing them myself (oh my).
As this is something i am not doing anymore (at least not in that form) i decided to dedicate a blog entry to this good old times.
My first own puppet show i created in 2008 and it was called “Ein feines Haus”. It was highly inspired by the novel “Coraline” from Neil Gaiman pre animationmoviewise. For this show i created the puppets together with a collegue who was actually a clown but also a puppeteer and we performed together. A friend of mine made some amazing animations. It was a show about loneliness and facing your fears and GOD do i look young!
