An average guy brings a girl home to his not so average apartment that is infested with puppets that hate him.
Jack Venturo’s 6th movie.
In 2015 I auditioned and was accepted by the Jim Henson Company to become an official Henson trained puppeteer. after the eight week program was over a few of us would continue to get together on a regular basis and keep practicing, playing and having fun with puppets, in January 2016 on my drive down to one of the last gatherings I came up with this little story, I presented it to the group and we filmed the whole thing on the spot, everyone improvised their own lines.
We had a bast doing it and it revived my love of fun for filmmaking. I haven’t had this much fun just making a movie with friends in a long time.
