Congratulations Wanlu on this excellent opportunity! This will offer great exposure as well as giving you a chance to really work on your ad libbing, which you'll find improving really quickly I think in this situation. That's one reason I like walkaround and street performing, when you HAVE to think quickly, it really improves your game. You might want to work on a few 'ad-libs' for every episode and you'll find opportunities to put them in, but don't be afraid to go with stuff as it comes to you also. Again, congratulations!

Oh, no!

I have almost the same idea. My figure is a congressman candidat and I'm his silent bodyguard. We doing a campaign humor.

I made a demo video, then gave it to a TV station including other scenario on January. Unfortunately (or fortunately) they choose the other scenario. We did it on air on February.

So good luck Wanlu!!

Hi everyone,

The pilot episode aired live a few hours ago. It went fairly well...only problem is the script which they revised, it had too many words I cant handle well. In any case, it went fairly well and we will be on every Tuesday and Friday Smile

Hi Budi...Cong.Dom is a former congressman, now a political analyst. He hits local politicians in the news and current events. Smile

Here's the latest news:

I saw a video of actual broadcast, my lip control was terrible because of the script they provided. It was a live brodcast and I opted for clarity and sacrificed lip control. It was my fault...I should have insisted on my own script. Smile

God willing, I will be a part of the show every Friday...and I will have to check the script and perhaps check on the camera shots...and maybe use my own mic. Smile

I hope next Friday would be a better episode Smile

Yes, still lips need a lot of practise, also for clarity speak.

In this kind of situation actualy we need less skill, since we only concentrate on still lips and figure manipulation. Our part is very easy, a dead pan look, straight erect and silent.

Years ago when I did stage show as silent adjutant of a former army general (my figure), I still using body language such as act boring, sleepy, etc. But when I did my conggresman cadidat show for demo video, I'm doing nothing. Somehow when I see the demo, I think, my part in the screen is annoying. It is better to take close up the figure, than took both of us on screen for a long time. But flashing both of us from time to time is okay.

Maybe it is better for you to talk with the director, that cameramen should take your figure more than both of you. Especially when your figure are saying difficult words, so you free to move your lips out of camera. Smile Smile Smile

Thanks Budi... Smile

That's exactly the plan for next week...only the opening and closing spiels will have dual shots...the rest will be tight shots on the figure.

Wanlu,
Despite the minor problems you had the first night, this is REALLY a great opportunity for you. I'm sure all the details will get worked out. I'm very excited for you. When are we going to get a look at some video?

I just saw a Jeff Dunham video in YouTube with Walther. Jeff was wearing shades ala Secret Service...this is the first time I have seen this. Believe it or not... Smile

Very much like what I did for my figure Don Dominador.
