What’s to review?

So I know a few other people are writing about End of Year/what they’ve accomplished etc etc.

Me? I’ve been reading and watching stuff to review, trying to catch up on photo and video editing, so not much progress there.

I have updated and tried turning my Linked In profile into a new CV, which is okay, they left out loads in the conversion to pdf, but it’s a start.

So, here’s a taste of what I’ve been up to lately-

Tiglets Time Travels- THE ENTIRE SAGA!

EP 1

Mr Tiglet began as a hiking mascot in early 2012 for Ian’s Travelblog Adventures, then gradually began taking over.

Devising a story arc for Tiglet’s Time Travels over two years was an epic Storytelling project. The First season was an exercise in storytelling using photographs and in poetic form and expanded into an epic storyline over the next few months. I finished the series in December 2013, an epic 17k words in 32 episodes, which is not bad, given that I had to make it with virtually no money and little resources, using whatever I could find to build/paint and shoot the series.

The sequel- Tiglet’s Timewars is undergoing planning, although I have no idea when it will be ready for release.

THE EPILOGUE- JAN.14

https://mrtigletstravels.wordpress.com/2014/01/11/tiglets-time-travels-the-epilogue/

“As the Time windows were closed and sealed, the Z’Romians returned to their Timeline and the Family of Tiglet settled in their new home, none of them had any idea that there were gathering clouds on a distant horizon.

But that is, as they say, another epic tale, to be told another time, and in another place.”

FROM THE EPILOGUE- Tiglet’s Time Travels will continue- someday!

Tiglet moving to Sesame Street???

 

Well, he wishes! Sesame Studios are looking for new ideas, so what could be newer than a talking Tiger (that isn’t Tony or Tigger bouncing everywhere?) So after a few days of mulling it over, I put a pitch together, watched a couple of their Youtube videos and reminisced about Bert and Ernie, The Count and the Cookie Monster, who are all still going, along with Big Bird and a few new characters.

The obvious thing to pitch was THE TIGLET SHOW! My attempt five years ago to do something Muppet-like. As Experimental No-Budget Filmmaking goes, this did stretch the budget!

Oh my Geeky Goddess! Where did I come up with this? WHY? Yes, I have actually gone back to watch it and it was experimental, (maybe emphasis on mental?) making it by myself had its challenges, you can tell I was running out of ideas by the third episode, not sure stitching together previously made videos worked either. Two things I was pleased about were Professor Von Ool and then the GrumpyCats, with their sarcy Waldorf and Statler-like comments at the end.

So, it’s all done and pitched. I attached my Creativity and Imagination playlist from Youtube and it’s just a matter of seeing what happens, if anything.

 

I know I blogged sometime last summer about how Darci Farmer blew me away with her ventriloquism on America’s got talent last year, but maybe I do need to light a fire underneath the Puppetry again. Maybe try and make an original puppet and see who else I can rope into it. Come up with a new project. Things like Avenue Q and the Happytime Murders are a bit too-adult-like, it’s things like The Muppets, The Storyteller, Fraggle Rock, even Labyrinth and Dark Crystal I’m more interested in.

Anyhoo, I’ve started planning the sequel to Tiglet’s Time Travels, titled Tiglet’s Time Wars, funnily enough- cos, like, it’s a sequel and there’s temporal shenanigans going on all over the multiverses. I did think of putting in ideas from my aborted Star Trek Fan Film- Preservation, plus stuff I thought up for Infinite Whoniverses and a kids Time Travel show- there’s an idea- kids and puppets, like a junior Farscape, that’s the way to do it! (As Punch would say!)

Anyway, a week’s gone by since I made my pitch, so no news is good news, right? Probably not, but I live in a perpetual state of Hope, even if it is the false kind.

699th Post- Tiglet’s Time Wars- The Next big thing of 2017??

ttw-poster-1It’s reached that point again, thinking, well, what haven’t I done this year that could be doable next year? Can I achieve it, is it a realistic goal?

Maybe, maybe not, I haven’t the foggiest (as Michael Caine’s version of Sherlock Holmes said in ‘Without a Clue’)

One thing I have held back from is getting round to the sequel to Tiglet’s Time Travels from 2012-2014. I have planned a trailer for a follow-up, but it’s not been a priority. I do want to make more live-action videos, get away from just hikes and puppetry, but this could make a nice mix.

So, Tiglet’s Time Wars- coming soon!

 

 

 

 

As for my 700th Blogpost- well, as Monty Python used to say, it’s time for something completely different!!
