This evening I spent about fifteen minutes creating a short fairy tale with the iPad app, “Puppet Pals.” I’ve titled this 7 minute, 40 second animated classic, “Seeking Adventure in the Wide World.” Any correlation to real situations and people, including the epic struggle now underway to change the draconian content filtering policies of a large school district in the central USA, are purely coincidental and should be treated as the result of random humor inspired by iPad creativity.

I recorded this audio using an iRig microphone. I’ve been thinking about creating some kind of animated video like this one for many weeks, so I didn’t actually write a script for it. This was a fun experiment in impromptu puppet videography… definitely an example of “Playing with Media!” I quite enjoyed the chance to be creative and a bit “out of the box” with different voices.

Enjoy! And viva la revolucion en las escuelas para mas libertad!
