Mrs. P Puts Potter Back In Bowl

Mrs. P returns with another guest post!

While this is an older piece, it is timely with the release of the latest Harry Potter movie. Puppets make great story telling vehicles. The homemade look and feel of this I think is inspiring in that with a camera on a tripod you can come up with something pretty imaginative. It’s good to remember that you don’t need a lot of special effects to make something fun and entertaining.
