Exhibition Opening night

These were from the opening night (Id meant to put these up about a month ago). and funny to see them getting the white gloves treatment. After months of abuse, being dropped/stepped on/knocked over/left lying in the mud/pulled apart/reassembled the well trained gallery goers carefully restrained themselves from so much as touching them for fear of breaking something.

I also had a loop of all the raw footage taken so far, of us pushing the puppets around dressed in our green lycra body suits and that was a huge hit (people straining their guts out in shiny green body suits...with goats...why wouldn't it be a hit). I cant help but wonder if the "Making Of" is going to be more entertaining than the final product. I hope not but you never know.

Exhibition Set-Up

The opening and exhibition all went pretty well. It was nice to see the puppets all set up on their little black plinths in front of a nice white wall.

These snaps were taken during the setup I'll post some of the actual opening shortly.

Of course it all meant a month of not being able to do any actual filming with them which was a bit frustrating but they're back in action now. Currently I've got a few of the goats strung up on the side of the local grain silo for a couple shots there....If it ever stops raining.
