In 2010 my friend Chris Carter asked me to video and edit Paperhand Puppet Intervention‘s production of Love and Robots. The performances took place in Saxapahaw, NC in October of 2010 and were a joy to document. This was the second of two filmings, the first taking place at the Art Center in Carrboro, NC.
Originally, there was a hope that we might record the music and narration separately in an ADR fashion, like Hollywood, but that never came together. Jimmy Magoo actually rebuilt the entire series of songs, but had a devastating computer crash – boo hoo. Consequently, the sound is a roughly recorded version of what the audience heard live.
I will expand on this blurb in the following days, listing principal players and puppeteers, but I want you to see what these folks did in an old gymnasium perched on the banks of the Haw River.
