Something to keep in mind is to look at your skills and talent objectively. The best performers remember that you can always learn something from any other performer (yes, even the odd Church puppeteer). Especially being as young as you are, as good as you think you are now you'll be 100 times better in ten years.Originally posted by Mr.Penguin
I'm pretty good at puppeteering. BUT NO CHURCES.
Muppet Short film idea:
Also - while it's great to be inspired by the Muppets - I've read time and again they don't want people who do what they already do. They don't need someone who can mimic voices. They want original, creative people. The whole company does work in a specific style, but they want people who bring something new to the mix.
Case in point: Bill Baretta. His characters, Pepe, Johnny Fiama, Clueless Morgan, etc. fit really well with the Muppets, but I'm not sure any of the other performers would handle them quite the same way. It might be good to remember that while pursuing your dream. Good luck!
