We had a blast in Rochester this past weekend hosting the Movement of Puppetry Workshop with Leah Hofmann. The Visual Studies Workshop provided us with the perfect space for getting Molok up on its legs and moving around. Molok was quite a terror - just look at the photos below!
Wow. We've had a busy week. You see, here at The Molok's Lair...AAARRRRGHHH I'M TOO EXCITED I HAVE TO JUST SAY IT, EXCEPT I'M TYPING SO I'LL HAVE TO JUST TYPE IT, EVEN THOUGH THAT"S NOT NEARLY AS EXCITING AS YELLING IT OUT, SO JUST MAYBE JUST PRETEND THAT I'M YELLING IT OUT...
WE ADDED 4 BALLERS TO THE MOLOK TEAM IN ONE WEEK. There it is. Now without further ado...introducing...the one and only...the amazing...the incredible...the stupendous.......
EDNA LUISE BEISOLD (The Color of Time, Viral Beauty) - DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
LEAH HOFMANN (War Horse, Something Rotten!) - PUPPETRY MOVEMENT CONSULTANT
LUKE BUCK - Lighting Designer AND Gaffer
PAUL DOUST - FRIGGIN COMPOSER!!!
Ok, I'm sweating...
The Molok is a creature whose very body is comprised of lost treasures. Orphan socks, broken toys, lost umbrellas, all kinds of objects that once were special to someone. And the more special they were, the more the Molok covets them. He draws his power from the energy we leave on these totems as we cherish and worship them. Maybe they were never really lost at all, but rather...stolen...or given. This is where you come in.
Get ready to have your mind pulled about and swaddled like a fuzzy piece of Pappy's famous salt water taffy. Harold Taddy of The Velvet Noose fame will be providing submersive sound design for The Molok. Moog synthesizers, gregorian chants, lullabies, binaural audio experiences... it'll FREAK YOU OUT MAN!
Welcome back Molokites!
We are excited to announce that our Indiegogo page is officially LIVE.
On it, you'll find some amazing perks - original postcards from Rochester, our badass movie poster, The Book of Molok, original sketches of our monster, and more!
We're working our Moloks off to raise at least $50,000 -- it sounds like a lot of money... because it is! And it's all going towards this massive creature we're building! And you have a chance to be a part of its creation!
