The Rabbit Hole of Puppet Making

@ VOL 1 ON MAY 27, 2016

"I'll talk about the surprisingly deep rabbit hole that is puppet making, and my creative tumble down it."

A graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, Clay Achee has studied and worked in the film and television industry for over 10 years. His other hobby? Cooking? Golf? Nah, he makes puppets.

We thoroughly enjoyed his presentation The Rabbit Hole of Puppet Making at PechaKucha Night Baton Rouge Vol. I.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, September 8th, 2016.

Leonardo Meza

There is no age limit -- or requirement -- to present at PechaKucha Night, and earlier this week 9-year-old "illustrillustrator" Leonardo Meza proved just that at the inaugural edition of PechaKucha Night in Savannah. That city's organizer Aaron Cohen had this to say on Leonardo's "Mythical Creature Drawings and Handmade Valentines" presentation: I don't know if it was his cuteness or his in-depth analysis of his own work, but this kid brought down the house. His keen observations and wonderment of how close the eye is to the brain and how two scorpions make a baby scorpion were hysterical. About four presenters thanked me afterwards for not having them follow his presentation.

Following up on our recent showcase of PechaKucha Night posters -- see Chattanooga and Gdansk -- here's a fun alphabetical take used for last week's PKN Savannah Vol. 1.

PKN Savannah Vol. 2

PechaKucha Night in Savannah Vol. 2 was held back at the end of April, but it's never too late to cover an event, and we absolutely love the panoramic view of the venue -- the Structured Green warehouse -- sent to us by organizer Aaron Cohen, and taken by Travis Linville. Aaron also sends us the following report: The inaugural PKN Savannah that took place in March turned out to be such a fine mix of talent and company that we found ourselves slightly daunted at the prospect of putting together a second PKN to match. The second rendition grew in both scale and audience -- good thing the evening was spent in the expansive and super cool environs of Structured Green's warehouse space. There, with vodka lemonades and PBRs in hand, a stellar crowd kicked back on hand-built furniture as the evening unfolded on the big screen. Musician and writer Rigel Crockett took us aboard the tall ship, Picton Castle, for a trip around the world. Back on shore, artist and curator Harry DeLorme brought us on the road with him to visit the roadside shrines of Northern Argentina. Chef Robbie Wood extolled the pleasures of "clean food" in a graphic few minutes that left the crowd rethinking the food industry. With his art, Ben Bublick showed how art can envelope people in color, form and texture. Erin Salzer Hannah, landscape architect, brought us down to earth again with the demonstrated challenge of creating small, urban gardens. The second half of the program continued the awesomeness with Orlando Montoya of Georgia Public Radio whose impeccable voice and timing kept us raptly tuned into to the history of public radio. Sculptor Andrew F. Scott turned history on its ear with his take on African folk arts. Musician turned collage artist, Matte Wagner took to the mic like he was playing the Fillmore. Craig Drennen had the crowd look straight in the eye of darkness with his brilliant adaption of Shakespeare's Timon of Athens; the experience mapped pleasure, politics and humor in a convergence of representation. The night was capped by tattoo artist Ron Dacosta's bold account of his life and times with the needle. PKN Savannah Vol. 3 is planned for September.

PKN Charleston in the News

There's a great piece in the Charleston Regional Business Journal about how that city's PechaKucha Night series is fueling ideas to the community: Charleston needs its own music festival. This was one idea floated at Pecha Kucha’s 19th event, held Tuesday at Memminger Auditorium in downtown Charleston. Creative types, entrepreneurs, residents and businesspeople gathered to hear seven presentations of stories, ideas, passions and inspirations. Speaker Charles Carmody said the Spoleto Festival serves the city’s art and music scene well, but that local musicians and artists should work together to bring a festival dedicated solely to music to Charleston. Carmody, the manager of the Charleston Music Hall, noted that many other artistic cities, such as Savannah and Knoxville, Tenn., have their own music festivals — and some cities have multiple. “There’s no reason why we shouldn’t have one here,” Carmody said. “We need to be working together. We don’t need to be competing. We can feed off of each other.” Read the full article here.
