Puppet Kaos - where Kelvin Kao plays with puppets and tell random stories

Episode 14 – Tofu

Wow, haven’t posted a new video for two months! This, of course has a lot to do with Christmas. Before Christmas, we had a lot of work to finish and we couldn’t really go on vacation until we finished them. So yeah, I was working hard, making money instead of putting together videos. And then I went home for Christmas, away from all my video making stuff. And then after I came back from Christmas I was just lazy… not so great of an excuse. Anyway, here is an episode that I wrote, recorded, and filmed before Christmas, but couldn’t finish editing in time. Now that I’ve wrapped it up, enjoy!

In this episode, Mac and Cheese and Bottle Monster answer questions about tofu and soy milk using shadow puppets. It was my first attempt at making and filming shadow puppetry! Did it turn out perfect? No. But it was fun to do nevertheless.

    […] doesn’t get any more original than a humorous puppet video about soy milk. I live on the stuff, and I never knew how it was […]

    Hi Thomas, I was going to give you a shout-out but “let’s all drink soy milk, like the lactose-intolerent folks” was a little too many syllables. Haha.

    That was genius, how you took the bland topic of tofu, and turned it into a shadow puppets-on-paper towel extravaganza! Congrats on creating a webisode that seamlessly interweaves animation, hand puppetry, and shadow puppetry with a comic zing!… I laughed my red feathers off, and almost laid a soy egg! — SeƱor Loro, the red parrot from LosTiteres.TV!

    Thanks for dropping by, SeƱor Loro. Do parrots eat tofu? Maybe most of them don’t, but you probably do!
