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

Looking Back At 2012

Looking back at 2012, there were actually quite a few things I did when it comes to this puppeteering and performing thing. I also attended various shows and workshops. Here are some highlights.


Puppet Jukebox II
Reunited with the cast for an one night only performance of the show we did months ago.

Went on TV
Was in the background as an alumnus while Puppet School was interviewed.

Jay’s Wedding Reception
Performed “Life’s a Happy Song” at a good friend’s wedding reception.

Jay’s Wedding Reception Videos
Also helped him with finger puppet videos. My first experience in HD!

War Horse
Saw some amazing horse puppets, followed by a cast Q&A as well.

Avenue Q
Seen the show before, but went to see it again since two friends are involved with this production.

Marionette Workshop
Took a workshop taught by master puppeteer Tony Urbano!

Puppeteered for a music video for an independent artist. No idea when the finished product would be done.

I’m A Broadway Puppet
Saw a Puppet School production. Saw old friends and met new ones. Both people that went with me signed up for class.

Poor Pussy
Was the translator, an extra, and also production assistant in a Columbia thesis film.

Call Me Maybe parody
Puppeteered in a video for a high school theater patron program.

Michael Earl Benefit
Wrote and performed movie parody with puppets for the show.

Being Doug
Puppeteered for a Chapman thesis film, including from under the bed.

Puppet Caroling
Sang Christmas songs with puppets at a senior home.

Jingle Bells
Made a Christmas video. Very happy with the final product.

Don’t know what lies ahead for 2013, but one thing is for sure: more videos! 😀

    Looks like you definitely indulged your passion during 2012 and I’m looking forward to seeing more of it during 2013. This definitely inspires me to “put my work out there” more than I’ve done in the past.
