Shadow plays

08 Mar

As I mentioned in the post about the overhead projector (more info here), one advantage of the OHP es shadow plays.

By definition, it’s to use puppets to tell a story using shadows and lots of imagination. It sounds easy but it’s really a work of art to make stories with just silhouettes. And the puppets are pieces of art themselves with tons of details.

For teaching, it’s an interesting way to make stories and narrative in general.

Good links to use are the following:

I tried to make the puppets without stencil or pattern and it’s hard. It took a lot of practice but I think I got it.
