This special all day workshop is a one-of-a-kind, hands on, in depth introduction in to the world of performing puppets and creatures and using puppetry to create practical special effects.
Using examples from our own work as well as major Hollywood films, we will be introducing participants to several different special effects puppetry techniques, including green screen (chroma key) puppetry, animatronics and rod/rig removal. Working collaboratively in small teams, participants will also have the opportunity to try their hand at performing animatronic puppets and bringing everyday objects to life on screen.
Although our focus will be on on-camera work, most of the techniques discussed can also be utilized in theatre and live performance. This workshop is intended for performers, indie filmmakers, enthusiasts and anyone else who wants to learn how to create a little movie magic for themselves!
