With William as my co-puppeteer (two things need to be manipulated at once and each of them require two hands), I shot my puppet film this afternoon. It took me about 4 hours to clear my space and light my set but he shooting itself was quite quick. The final project should be about 90 seconds, perhaps 2 minutes, although I might let it linger on screen a bit longer since, as the title suggests "It's About Time".
