So, earlier I mentioned that we were doing a dialogue piece with marionettes. Well, here it is – a scene from the 1966 Batman movie.
To give you a little bit of background (since all these puppets look the same), this is the scene where Catwoman, Riddler, Joker, and Penguin are discussing how to set up a trap to get Batman. Catwoman is not shown in this video (since she has few lines) but she is assumed to be sitting a seat with her back to the camera. From left to right, you have Riddler (Toby Rogers), Joker (Farah Griffin) and Penguin (yours truly).
There might be some confusions watching this video since all the puppets look the same, and they all have crazy cartoonish villain voices. Still fun to watch though!
Of course, watching it closely, there are still things that I can pick on, particularly my own part. Not necessarily because I am the most harsh on myself, but because I know my part best. There’s definitely parts where I should’ve been more still when my character wasn’t talking, and I should’ve landed the feet and butt better when the puppet is standing up and sitting down. But overall, I thought we did great for the limited time we spent rehearsing. There’s always room for improvement, of course.
Next level of classes begin this weekend. I’m looking forward to it. 😀
