I can understand that! Every single day I would practice, whether it's lip-syncing every word or improving it's movement I always feel that I'm improving each time!
I lip-synch every single word I say, and I have improved so much!

I live in Britain and I lot of the assistant puppeteers on mmw were from the UK and one of the best places to look is the jim Henson company as they do puppeteer adutions for there projects:sympathy:

I do the same too! I practice almost every day. I like to practice with a monitor like how the Muppets do it. I'm also improving on my puppet building(I recently started using Antron fleece,The official Muppet fleece).

For me I would usually use Anti-Pill Fleece. and as far as Lip sync goes or if you're doing Live performances, I found this video to be really helpful.

I'm 15. My overall lifetime goal would be to do a Muppet project but my goal if I become a puppeteer is to get a puppet sitcom back to prime time British tv. I already have a list of puppeteers that I would want on the show including 18 year old puppeteer Max Fulham

Henson company looking back on it now I wouldn't join unless I was doing puppet up as that is the only real Henson puppet work

Meh, they have that Happytime Murders thing. If there is a potential sequel you could audition.

Anti-pill fleece and polar/blizzard fleece are really the best things most people can use, mainly because they're not only widely available in various different shades and colors, but it's also reasonably priced.

Hey just wondering,Can you have a lisp and be a performer, Cause I sorta have a lisp. It's not like Sylvester the Cat's lisp where it is a little over exaggerated but Can I be a performer with one
