Yesterday I mentioned Shadowlight puppet theater out of San Fransisco. Well, here’s one of their behind-the-scenes videos which shows just some of the amazing things that they can make happen with shadow and light
What’s particularly cool is the way they use three light sources, which allows for instant scene changes as well as some other pretty nifty tricks. The lights are super-crisp and that allows them to away from the screen. Watch how they use scale to create a sense of perspective in a medium that is inherently two dimensional.
They’ve got other videos on their YouTube channel that are well worth checking out. And if you are in the Bay area when they are mounting a show, do not hesitate. Go see it.
