Radiation Level: Puppeteering
Listening To: Les Fleurs by Minnie Ripperton
Some of you may know I have another blog. If you’ve never visited, I wanted to give you a taste Bootsie, my sock puppet. Bootsie loves to answer ads on Craigslist: FAIL . Let me assure you, Craigslist is a *wacky* world. No wonder I like it!

Kids tv Pilot)-low budget
Looking for a puppeteer or actor that can sing. The singing can be average; however a great singer is a plus!
Please send a ( short video )of yourself with a puppet. I need a voice that sounds like a seven year old kid. I do not need to see your face. Be Creative! We are checking for voice tone (child like), humor and personality.
Introduce yourself, sing part of a song of your choice, do something funny or clever. Be CREATIVE!
Position is paid; however, this is for a (low budget pilot). God Bless and good luck!
Dear Kids Pilot,
I’m a professional actress and singer. My most famous role was Annie in Annie at the Simi Valley Playhouse. I did the show in rep with the stage version of Carrie adapted from the novel by Stephen King. I love working with puppets and made a video specifically to show my puppetry talents. Here’s the vid:
So I knew this next ad was a great excuse to bring Bootsie out of the sock drawer…

This ad next ad really intrigued me. It was a “casting call” for some experimental movie using social media. The call was to make a video as if you were speaking to a missing girl using the script on the website. I knew this was a job for Bootsie.
