Handmade Puppet Dreams: Vol. 2 & Toby Froud's Lessons Learned
Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam has been providing quality live puppet shows for Seattle adults since 2011 and is proud to team up with the Grand Illusion Cinema to present Handmade Puppet Dreams: Volume 2, an evening of short puppet films produced and curated by Heather Henson. Krab Jab Studio also presents Toby Froud's newest award-winning short film "Lessons Learned" with the filmmaker in attendance for Q&A afterwards.

Handmade Puppet Dreams is an award-winning collection of live-action adult puppet films- hilarious, heartwarming, profane and irreverent- in styles ranging from Muppet hand and rod to stop motion, shadows, marionettes, and underwater thingamajigs.

Handmade Puppet Dreams: Volume 2 includes:
"Harker" by Tony Giordano, Jason Murphy, & Scott Shoemaker
"Finger Puppets Everywhere" by Laura Heit
"Unicycle Baby Guy" by Matty Sidle
"A Small World" by Lyon Hill
"Project Huxley" by Simon A. Brown
"The Tea Party" by Kate Artibee
"Isemond" by Xander Marrow & Mat Brinkman
"Hold Me Now" by Damien Eckhardt-Jacobi and Vincent Bova
"Dante's Inferno" by Sean Meredith
"Hot in Herre" by Thomas Sontag & Alex Moulton

"Lessons Learned" is an award-winning short film created by Toby Froud and produced by Heather Henson. Toby Froud is a Portland, OR based sculptor, fabricator, costumed performer, and puppeteer who is also well known as the baby in Jim Henson's "Labyrinth" and fabricator for the recently released stop-motion animation film "Boxtrolls".

About Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam: Herded together into a graceful flow by the troop's resident emcee, Seattle's Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam is a cabaret-style puppet show for grown-ups. Each short piece  whether hilarious, heartbreaking or horrifying  is created and performed by puppeteers from the Pacific Northwest (and beyond!) From the brand spanking new to the tried-and-true, every act is guaranteed to have one important thing in common: puppets.

ALSO! Toby will give an intro to the 8pm screening of Labyrinth the same night. Tickets for this screening will be sold separately and are available in advance on the Grand Illusion website: http://www.grandillusioncinema.org/
