About the Event

Marionettes and Filmmaking combines storytelling with sculpture. We will be crafting one-of-a-kind marionettes and using them in a collaborative short film. As a class, we will brainstorm the possibilities for our film and each student will create a unique character out of Sculpey to star in the production. This workshop covers the basics of costuming, set design, scriptwriting, character building and marionette construction.

All materials and tools will be provided.
