I am super excited to announce that we are recording "To Catch a Tiger" By Daniel Burke as an audio play this weekend. "To Catch a Tiger" tells the story of four Nonion children Eeny, Meeny, Miny and Moe, who crash land on an Alien world known to them as Earth. In an effort to escape this strange planet the four Nonions must retrieve some Earthly resources to fix their ship. There is only one problem standing in their way... a tiger! Or is it a Rabbit... Miny thinks it's a rabbit!
We have some amazing talent for each role and will unveil more information and samples soon.
Here are a few pictures highlighting our work on, "The Holiday Bug" puppet show.
Recently Crosstitch Productions created a custom puppet show for the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. We wanted to take a little time to show, the overall process of how each puppet was created.
There were four puppets created for the "Art of Baking." All of the puppets are simple cable control. They each utilize one cable to control the mouth. Rods are used to manipulate the head and arms.
The following will be a very rough and simple way to explain how the puppets for the "Art of Baking"
This part we will go over the general view of the puppet mechanism design. The design used was created to allow bottom mouth movement and independent control of the body and head.
Our artist Matthew Van Gorkom has been working hard to finish the 3D models for the "Late Night Swim of Little Blue" and we are please to release some samples of some of the models. These will be used in the creation of the book, puppet show and some of our secret projects...stay tuned for more info.
Daniel Burke author of "To Catch A Tiger" and co-author of "The Holiday Bug" has agreed to adapt "The Late Night Swim of Little Blue" to script form. Crosstitch Productions is hoping to release "The Late Night Swim of Little Blue" in 2016 as a puppet show as well as an audio play. Stay tuned for future updates on the project.

Hope everyone had a great holiday! Crosstitch Productions has some big projects in the works this year...Our first big project of 2014 Crosstitch Productions is Partnering with the Mongomery Museum of Fine Arts to create a one of a kind puppet show to teach children the importance of art and diversity.
The kids will learn from Mr. Durrie the French Fox and owner of the cake factory that "Art is everywhere." Each character in the bakery will show that their particular differences, talents and skills allow them to work together in order to make tasty masterpieces. All along children will learn about shapes, primary colors, cold and warm colors, patterns and what it takes to become and artist.
..more news will follow as our team creates the art, music and puppets.
We still have some big projects planned for this year. Check back weekly for more updates.
