Rock and Roll and Puppetry
May 9, 2012 6:01 PM   Subscribe

I went to the PUNCH Puppet Slam in NYC last month and saw several music videos that feature fancy puppetry. I wanted to share them with you: "I'll Forget You" by Lior; "Hallways" by Islands; "Small Hands" by Keaton Henson.

I was there because a (puppet) video of my own was in the program, but GUESS WHAT, ain't linking it.

I really really like this. The Lior video is just awesome. Thanks for posting it!

I love the Islands video, thank you! Any song with some handclaps gets my vote automatically, but skeletons handclapping? Even better!

And thank you for the intro to Keaton Henson too. Lovely song, great video.

damehex, maybe you could put the link to your own piece in your profile. I for one would love to see it!

Thanks for sharing this. I really enjoyed watching the videos, especially the video by the great band Islands.

Seconding palmcorder, I'd love to see your own piece linked in your profile. I hope you had a wonderful time at the PUNCH Puppet Slam!

Oh! But that video for Small Hands was a sad one.

Puppet Slam is a neat concept that deserves greater audience. Thanks for raising awareness of it.

I am a little sad that punch's website is not very well maintained.
