Keeping the Halloween spirit(s) alive with the 48hr Halloween Puppet Film Project!

The filmmakers had a time limit of 1minute 11seconds, with films featuring live-performance puppetry, and incorporating our live-drawn action of DANCE, item of WINDOW, and theme of HALLOWEEN!

Please enjoy this burst of creativity, and applaud all of the filmmakers. Following the films, we'll have an award ceremony, celebrating the top rated films!
