Topic: Practicing a new routine
Message: Posted by: wizardpa (Jan 9, 2012 11:57AM)
Whenever I think of a new routine for one of my puppets, I like to memorize my dialog first. Then I'll take a hand held mirror and I practice my lip control. Next I'll add my puppet and then I try to get his mannerisms down, and then I'll practice the routine numerous times until I feel it's right.
Then I get my video camera out and I'll tape myself doing the routine and then view it. I'll make changes if need be, and I'll do this several more times.
Lastly, I practice my routine several times again a day or two before the show I plan to do my new routine in.
I just wonder what other vents do when they have a new routine they want to add to a show.
