Here’s a video we shot at the Vent Haven ConVENTion 2011 with ventriloquist Marc Rubben. This was the first time I had met Marc face to face. Steve (my partner) had met Marc a couple of years earlier and told me lots about him, so I was looking forward to this meeting.

Marc had brought some of his ventriloquist figures to show and sell, most of the Big Heads made by Robert McRay and invited us to his room to see these figures and do a little “show” for us.

Let me forewarn you the video quality and sound at times is not that great, but I thought you would enjoy seeing this video.

    GREAT figures! Thanks for sharing that Dan & Steve. Just a bit of hopefully helpful advice, The reason it kept getting dark off & on until you switched to the other side of the room was that lamp. Any time you have bright light via lamps, windows, etc, in front of a camera, video or still, & especially behind your subject, you run a high risk of that old problem. You may have known this already, but thought i’d pass it on in case you didn’t. But it’s kind of hard to “arrange” for every situation. Thanks for all the vids from the conVENTion! Wish i could have gone!
