Not long ago I did an interview with the lovely chaps at The Box Set Pod.
You can stream it here http://www.theboxsetpod.com/listen
During the show I talk about my love of The Muppets, and how the films The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth fuelled my dream of becoming a puppeteer (with a few distractions along the way). We also get sidetracked onto the world of geekdom, box sets and I mention my love of John Carpenter movies, especially Big Trouble In Little China.
I’d never done a long form interview like this so was quite anxious about it to say the least. But the guys were great and I think it went really well. It’s episode 2 of season 2, entitled simply “Muppet”.
I hope you enjoy it!
A few weeks ago I did an interview for Young Performer Magazine. The magazine of the Stagecoach Theatre Schools.
They came round to my house and to my horror the first thing they did was set up a camera. “Oh, we video the interviews for our website” they informed me.
My heart sank.
The reason I love puppetry and voice work is that you don’t have to see ME! Plus on the day of the interview I was suffering from a horrendous virus passed on to me by my ever loving children.
Indeed, once it was all over I went to bed and didn’t get up for 2 days!
Anyway, here it is. It’s not very long as they only post short clips of the interview on the website. The full (print) article will be published in the January issue of Young Performer.
I haven’t watched it yet. Others have and they say it’s fine.
I bow to their wisdom.
