Tour Poster and Video
I’m happy this Saturday because I just finished this new video to promote my projects and upcoming tour. I’m pretty excited about how it turned out. There was a lot involved in the making of it, actually. I had to learn a new technique to make some animations using After Effects. It’s pretty fun and very intuitive. I think once I’m back from tour I may really get down into some animations, it’s the direction I’m leaning with my puppet opera, though I do also wish to shoot live footage of the large puppets. Whew! I’m rambling!!!
I can’t believe I’m headed out on another month-long jaunt. It’ll be my first tour since baby Albus was born. I’m pretty nervous to be leaving my family like this, but also very excited to see friends in Europe and to get to try out this new format for my shows. I’ll be having a playbill, which will tell everyone what I’m performing and give info about what’s being performed, and I’ll be playing a wide variety from my various interests, giving a cross section of my life as a tree.
This video would not have been possible if not for the amazing assistance of my partner Laura Lee Jones. She made the puppet which comes originally from the tour poster design…
… and she has offered endless help with my bookings and other business work involved in this tour. Thank you Laura…
