Hey Muppet Central,

It’s Artie Esposito. Myself and the guys from Swazzle have been developing a new puppet-filled children’s book called Merry Christmas, Krampus. It just launched on Kickstarter and we’d love for you to check it out.

We have some awesome puppet related premiums, including:

-a 5 day puppet performance workshop, where we’ll teach you the puppet performance techniques that we use at The Jim Henson Company, The Muppets, and Sesame Street! Plus, you’ll come out of the workshop with clips for your puppet demo reel!

-a 5 day puppet building workshop, where we will teach you how to build puppets using the puppet building techniques that we use at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. You’ll start with a design, and come out of the workshop with a finished puppet!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/christmaskrampus/merry-christmas-krampus

The book tells the story of legendary Christmastime creature Krampus and how one child from Santa’s Naughty List teaches him that all “bad” children have some good in them.

While the majority of children’s picture books use either hand-drawn or computer illustrations, Merry Christmas, Krampus will be told through beautifully staged still photographs featuring handcrafted puppets and sets. Once the images are captured, each posable puppet will be enhanced with a digitally mapped two-dimensional, line-drawn face. The final effect will give the puppets a wide range of playful expressions.

Get the book for $30 shipped, before the promotional price runs out, or sign-up for a workshop. Space is limited!
