That is very kind of you to say, cubanheel. It means a lot to me to hear this project is being appreciated by people who are aware of Mr. Harrison and his persona. So many thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts!
Folks can keep up to date with what 'George' is up to, and what projects i am working on with him on 'Facebook'.
Yes indeed, 'George' has his very own Page....and i may have already mentioned it earlier in this thread.
Search for 'George Harrison Marionette' and it should come up on Facebook. Hope to see you there!
Getting back to responding to cubanheels comments now....
I would absolutely LOVE to go someplace where 'George' would be able to perform for a welcoming audience 'live'. I have a lot of experience performing with my marionettes in front of a audience and on stage...so this would be a natural for me. To date 'George' has only performed live in front of a audience once, and it was for a small gathering of about 15 people who were not overly familiar with George Harrison's works, besides the obvious Bealtes connections of course. They enjoyed him, but i will admit i often wondered how well he would do performing for people who are FULLY aware of him? I would imagine folks would go absolutely nuts....or either be scared out of their wits. 'George' seems to bring out these two extremes in people i have discovered this past year while sharing the current video playlist with other Forum posters elsewhere in Cyberspace.
'George' at a B-Con? Sure...i would be up for that if i was extended a invitation.
The one thing however that concerns me is his safety, and the fact he is not very easy to transport ( wheels only...no flying!). George himself hated flying in airplanes...and the same can be said for his marionette likeness as this puppet is lifesize. I seriously do not intend on bringing him on as carry-on baggage on a airplane. Can you imagine what would happen at the security checkpoint??
In all seriousness though...i would love to be able to bring him somewhere and let him perform in person.
Hey, maybe that film premeire coming up....made by that well known director?
