Video Diary #1

As many of you know, Treehouse Shakers began our development rehearsals for our seedling drama, Hatched in June.



Calf Sketch for Puppet. Concept by Patti Gilstrap, Drawing by Florence McEwin
Calf Model by Patti Gilstrap using ties and pipe cleaners

During our process I began a video diary. Unfortunately, our THS video camera has one mighty defect and is lacking on sound. Much of my fine footage has been lost. Nevertheless, I was able to use my digital camera and record Patti Gilstrap at work on the calf puppet in her studio space, Home Ec in Brooklyn. In the following video diary, Patti explains the skeletal frame of the puppet.



Special Thanks to Brent Hankins for volunteering his fine editing skills.

I hope to have more Video Diaries up soon!
