Grant Baciocco is a writer, actor, comedian, puppeteer and host of the Henson podcast. Grant also runs a blog called “Grant’s Advent Calendar”.
The video blog takes us on an adventurous 25 day ride (one video per day) to record Grant opening each door to his advent calendar. The last door is opened on Christmas day. Grant doesn’t know what gift(s) are consealed in his Advent calendar and the opening of each calendar door must be shot in only one take.
It is fun to see all the different locations and people Grant meets as he opens each door. The latest video has Grant opening a Advent door in the belly of an Audrey 2 at the Swazzle workshop.
Subscribe to Grant’s podcast for more videos, and sign up for Grant’s Advent contest that will be announced December 14th.
Snitchseeker.com is holding it’s 1st annual Harry Potter sock puppet contest! Here are the rules as laid out in their site:
Socks should resemble a Harry Potter character for whom we have been given an adequate description. We don’t really know what Victoire looks like, so we can’t possibly judge your accuracy without a reference!
NO SOCKS WITH PATTERNS. Only plain socks are allowed, though you may start with any solid color you like. If you use a patterned sock, your entry will not be counted!
Be creative! No printing stuff, like Harry’s whole face, off the internet. Make good use of your materials because you could be rewarded for it
The photograph of your sock puppet must be sized to 320×240 OR 640×480.
Various titles and prizes await those who partake, so start making your sock puppets today!
