Ventriloquist Central Video Series – Frank Marshall Raising Eyebrows

I had a request to see up close the working of the Frank Marshall raising eyebrows. As you know I have done several blogs plus have a page on the website specifically detailing the Marshall eyebrows.

Today I did a video so you can see from both the front and the side how Frank did his raising eyebrows. He really knew how they worked and had it down. The eyebrows most makers use today just look like windshield wipers and those just do not come close to how raising eyebrows are supposed to look.

I hope all you aspiring makers take a lesson from the old master and take a little extra time and make yours like these.

    Looks like he also put the rod in almost straight in from the side of the head, near the center of the eye socket, instead of near the temples & in from the front. Still the master after all these years :)

    Actually, after looking again just now, i guess it WAS at the temple, but in from the side verses in from the front. Pretty amazing.
