The Aftab Pureval Duck flies again

The Aftab Pureval Duck flies again

I had the pleasure to shoot another as the puppeteer of The Duck in a video with Hamilton County Clerk of Courts, Aftab Pureval.  He is running for US Congress in 2018.  This will be the second time in almost two years that I have voiced and puppeteered The Duck for  campaign videos for Aftab.  Here is a link to the other videos that I perform The Duck:  CLICK HERE TO WATCH

While it may seem easy, providing the character voice and holding the puppet up into frame for the camera to see, requires me to hide myself behind Aftab while keeping The Duck puppet steady and in the shot.

You may be wondering where The Duck puppet came from.  The puppet was purchased by Aftab’s campain staff a couple years ago when he was running for Hamilton County Clerk of Courts (He WON!).  It was created by puppet builder Steve Axtell of Axtell Expressions.

This particular shoot was made on location at a private residence in Downtown Cincinnati.  Many thanks to the camera crew, and Aftab’s campaign manager Sarah Topy for having me back as The Duck’s puppeteer. I will be certain to share the video when it is posted online.  Best wishes AFTAB!

What a Winter it has been in Cincinnati!  Cold! Snow! Ice!  Good thing we make these little videos on sunny days when the weather is nicer.  This week we are back at the Mt. Airy Forest playground.  It’s an odd name since there are NO mountains in Cincinnati!
Here’s this week’s silly joke:

Thanks to Tiernan for being this week’s super special guest.  Did you catch a peek of Eleanor sneaking up on the guys at the end?  You must have eagle eyes.  Please share a silly joke with us, we love them!  Puppets ROCK!!!
