2D Puppet Animation Workshop


Original post on Open Eye Figure Theater’s website

Workshop Cost: $25 for 2 sessions

In this 2-part workshop, participants will learn about the quarantine-friendly process artist Myra Su took to create an animated paper puppet film, adapting her background in live puppetry to building and working in a digital form.

The workshop begins with a breakdown of traditional animation styles to explore ways one can adapt their puppetry practice for film, followed by tips and tricks for storyboarding, puppet construction, lighting, and film editing.

Participants will be able to create their own illustrated 2D puppets and set pieces in the hands-on component of the workshop.
