Bring a simple story or a collection of images and we will transform them into a shadow puppetry book you can take home with you and have handy to perform at a moment’s notice.
You will be guided through a process of transforming your story into graphic-novel-inspired shadow puppetry. This is a very simple, accessible and elegant form of LED shadow puppetry, made up mostly of still-frame images with very few moving figures, so that one person can puppeteer the entire story on their own. Learn to build your own pop-up cardboard mini-theatre to project your shadow puppetry at parties, events, or even on the street corner. With this technique, the puppeteer can direct the viewer’s eye in a very filmic way, zooming in and out of sections, and making a dance of light and shadow.
