Saturday, 7/11 1-3pm
Cost: $5
To register, click on the ticket link or call 310-458-2239.

Join studio resident Matt Reynolds in a two-part workshop in which participants will construct their own cut-out paper puppets for use in a collaborative stop motion puppet performance. In part one, Matt will cover the basics of character cut-out puppet construction and anatomical functionality as well as his techniques for using stamp and print-making for character and background design. In the following week, participants will use a down shooter multi-plane setup to choreograph an ensemble stop motion animation using their original paper puppet characters. No prior experience needed with animation in order to participate.
