Axtell’s “MAGIC MOMENT” with Ventriloquist Gary Owen

July 23, 2018

This is Steve Axtell designer of the Axtell Expressions line of puppet characters. My team and I build them and others like yourself bring them to life. I call this the “The MAGIC MOMENT” to describe what happens when your puppet comes to life for the first time. It is an amazing moment when it can become anything you want it to be, but usually it just happens! Discovery of character, personality, life, voice, eye contact, manipulation all come together at this moment. Sometimes it’s immediate, sometimes it comes in stages over time. To me it is the simplest yet one of the most powerful forms of MAGIC, so I wanted to explore the process with some pros who we can all learn from. I hope you enjoy the series of videos!
