About The Event
Are you looking to improve your puppetry technique? Learning On Camera "Muppet-Style" puppetry is one of the best ways to learn focus, specificity and accuracy because of the immediate feedback of the monitor. You actually get to see the performance from the audience's point of view while you do it. This builds skills that apply to whatever puppetry style you want to pursue!
This workshop will be a 3 hr. intensive with industry professional Greg Ballora, and is geared to the beginner. We want to get you up and on camera, with exercises to continue your work at home. We plan to cover the basics of puppet and puppeteer posture, eye-line, lip sync, and starting on double hand rod manipulation. Starting in front of a mirror, we will work up to working on a regular scan monitor.
*We will supply puppets but you are welcome to provide your own*
