The Deep Past

This is a video I made last year as an audition for the National Puppetry Slam. It's pretty crude. I'd say Margery Winifred Mountain-Cloud was a brief precursor to Mary Broomfellow. I think I probably built Mary about a month after this video was made. In the end, I did get accepted to perform in the National Slam (thank goodness! I wouldn't have been able to afford to go to the festival otherwise). By that point, the Advocacy piece was much more robust and it was Mary Broomfellow's big debut. Interesting to look back at this video, though.... it seems like ancient history to me now but it wasn't even two years ago.
