How to make money with puppets... a new book

As a rule I'm not a fan of posting adverts on my blog... but Paul Louis sent me a link to his new book recently and I thought it would be helpful to a lot of the people that read my blog (judging from the questions I get emailed). I'm guessing most of you will have seen his videos from eHow on YouTube so you'll probably know who he is, but for those of you who don't know him check out his bio below: 
Paul Louis has been a professional puppeteer, filmmaker, award winning actor, writer & composer since 1981. He is a now popular Internet Video Puppetry Guru, featured on,, and all over YOUTUBE. As a power seller on eBay, Paul has built more than 4,000 custom puppets for theaters, ministries and film/video production. He is a "direct call" listed puppeteer with The Jim Henson Company, and the creator of the former nationally syndicated children's puppet TV series, "Jelly Bean Jungle" (Which President Clinton called, "High quality children's programming"). Louis has performed as a puppeteer for more than 30 TV & Film productions, including the hit cult film, "Team America: World Police." He now teaches puppet building and performance workshops all over the world, and collaborates & advises producers on their own puppet related projects for TV, film and theatre.
If you'd like to check out the book for yourself then please follow the link below:

I'm back from I-Fest and have had a little break - but now it's full speed ahead in the workshop again!

One thing I did realise when I came home from the States was I never showed a video of Wolfgang - I just posted his photo on here. Now don't get me wrong the video isn't going to be an Oscar winner or anything like that... but i like it. It doesn't even feature any good puppetry... but it's fun: enjoy!
