Friday Fun, Snapdragon Puppets
Roger Mara is a very the talented puppeteer and puppet builder behind Snapdragon Puppets. His web site, snapdragonpuppets.com has been completely overhauled, and it looks great. Along with plenty of puppet pictures and show information, the new site includes an extensive behind the scenes section. Roger covers a wide range of topics including casting small puppet heads, video and foam puppets, giant walk-arounds, and more. Snapdragonpuppets.com also has a large section dedicated to puppet video production, that gives an in-depth look into the making of the Emmy Award winning video The Mousecracker.
