Tens of thousands of people are descending on Atlanta this weekend for Dragon*Con and for the first time ever the convention organizers have assembled four full days of incredible puppetry programming (click the link to see the full schedule). Be sure not to miss guests of Honour Peter Linz, Leslie Carrara-Rudolph and Heather Henson who will all be doing multiple panels and presentations throughout the weekend along with several other puppeteers who will be familiar to long-time PuppetVision readers.
I will be there and presenting my PuppetVision: Principles of Great Puppetry demo/talk on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. at M101. I’m also thrilled to be moderating what’s sure to be really fascinating panel about puppets on film with Ibex Puppetry’s Sam Hale, Kevin McTurk and Heather Henson on Monday morning at 10 a.m. at Embassy C (check the Dragon*Con website for more details).
(special thanks to Beau for the Lolly video above and all his hard work organizing the Dragon*Con puppetry track)
