Pivot Point Of Ventriloquist Figure Mouth – Part 2


Yesterday I wrote a blog about the pivot point of a ventriloquist figure’s mouth and Bill Matthews asked for a picture or diagram.

Our good friend Greg Claassen (author of McElroy Magic) sent us this page out of his book to share with everyone.

Thanks, Greg for sharing this information.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to: http://www.ventriloquistcentral.com

    Thanks Dan for the McElroy pivot pic. I want to get their book as soon as i can. I am a vent figure maker and have Brose’s book but i had two figures made before i got his book, and those figures i put on hold cuz i was having trouble with the axis of the jaw.
    Oh and how about that picture of the door hinge Marshall used for his slot jaws?

    Hello Dan & Steve, Happy New Year. I plan on starting a wooden head within the next couple of weeks. I appreciate the tip on the jaw movement. One of the problems i had with the mache head i made was the gap under the chin. I am wondering about other resources that might be out there. I appreciate your advise.
