Chico Bandito Marionette

June 2008

Associated Post(s):

Whether this series of shorts is complete or on the verge of a final conclusion is unclear. Chico Bandito, the marionette who hangs in the laundry room, is either doomed to remain hanging next to the washer or just a short step from breaking free. The series which began last summer represented both a shooting and editing exercise in which a large amount of staging went in to developing simple plot lines. Episode 4 is a great example of this. Another episode may emerge at some point, but my mind hasn't been made up - hence no official or complete project post yet. If anything, I think I'd like to see Chico make one last stand. He's a one of a kind marionette that my dad got in Mexico in the 1980's.

Nice post. lol. I'm laughing because I just repsonded to your post on my blog referring to ROBO hobo. I asked when the next Chico would be. Then I came to your blog and was like "Well then!". But, yeah, I would like to know what happens. Don't be a major television network and cancel the series before we find out "why?".
