I'm not fond of holiday weekends. They're like line-cutters who jump in and screw up the assigned order.
Nonetheless, they come whether I like them or not, and I try to make the best of them.
It's rather dull work. The thought that keeps me twisting is that if I finish it today, I can move on to something more interesting (assembling a minature desk) tomorrow. Sadly, this is the part of puppet films I don't like: puppet construction. In high school, the biggest reason I pulled away from becoming a theatre costume technician was because I hated sitting for hours on end pulling strands of faux hair through wig fabric.
I have a hard time sitting still, even at the computer. I am fidgiting and looking for distractions right now.
If the studio ever has money someday, I will hire an artisan to construct my puppets for me (after hiring a real photographer, that is).
