Victorian. Ghost. Story. Puppet. = Favorite. Things. Ever.
I have been anxiously awaiting the completion of Kevin Turk's "Victorian ghost story puppet stage and short film experience," since sometime in 2011. I first heard about the project from a puppeteer friend and my puppeteering teacher/mentor at the time, who were both working on the film. More recently, I was lucky enough to catch the premiere of the trailer here in LA at one of Heather Henson's Handmade Puppet Dreams events. Mysterious, beautiful and creepy, Turk did not disappoint.
It is a "tale narrated by Victor Karloch, an alchemist, ghost hunter and scholar who has devoted his life to the exploration of the supernatural."
