State of the Art?

Why am I feeling like a monkey about what's going on in the puppetry world?
What's going on this week guys? Since Noami Guss' article on the state of Australian puppetry, I have been inundated with complaints about how bad it is for local puppetry! I personally decline to see how bad anything is. Maybe it's the push we need to stand up and unite for our humble cause!

On a lighter note, PuppetVision informs us of a new technology which will certainly create future possibilities for puppeteers involved in the television industry to show their work. Google's inbrowser video playback player... on Monday, Google will launch its browser video playback feature based on the open source VLC media player. How exciting is this?

And last, but not least, UNIMA Australia is about to launch its new website for the 2008 Union International de la Marionnette International Congress and Festival, which will be held in Perth, Western Australia. So bookmark the site and check the news as it develops! It's rumoured to be the biggest and most exciting UNIMA festival ever?

I thought you would be excited about the Google video services, Gary!

I'm still thinking we should try to get Royal de Luxe to the 2008 congress...

I'm glad you are enjoying the blog :-)
