I'm super excited to finally share this puppet show with y'all! Made by myself and two friends as Tryfuss Puppet Collective and set to music by our friends Snakefeast. Made two years ago, finally filmed in March, and brought to your screens today thanks to photography by Katelynn Zimmerman and editing by Aran Keating.

This was amazing the music for one helps drive this all the different artwork was amazing some very fine detail here, you should do more stuff like this its some intense stuff, This was a worthwhile flash, And so what we have here Is a fine and finished product as we near the end of the flash, Bring It to its highest level possible and I believe for the mostpart you have done just that.

Untraditionally dark vibes here for a puppet show!And not the kind of puppetry I was expecting either, but I do like it. The jagged knife, the silhouettes overlapping... really classy play on shadows and some smooth slight of hand there. Mealy liked the running bit too, trees streaming by on loop... it's cool to see how the scenes are made up too, and simple tricks all looking so effectual. And narrative via text like the old days! Heavy text, too. Gotta love how it just keeps building, all accompanied by the music, and all with a message too. Being torn apart by the grievances of the gods... aren't we all just paper shells of someone else. Beasts in our minds.

Paper bit scrolling by though... didn't seem as 'realistic' as the rest of it. But, overall, work of art. Appreciate how unconventional it was too.


1 This is great. 2 I hate the singer's voice except when it's synced to the puppet. 3 The music is perfect. 4 I hope you do more of this again sometime.

It is creepy, and the music helped settle in the mood of the show. Did you get inspiration to do the puppets from anything? It reminds me of shadow plays and how people use cut outs and lights to tell stories, and the hand drawn pencil pictures used with the shadows was creative too.

Thanks so much! Puppet theater is what we specialize in but we based the illustrations for this particular show on the demons in the Ars Goetia (a 17th. c demonology text) and on a trip we took to the Baltimore Museum of Art's really wonderful printmaking collection where we asked them to pull out their best old monster designs for us.
