Puppetry & Digital Video
This workshop will explore the basics of enhancing puppetry techniques with simple digital video tools. The workshop will examine how to approach puppetry with video in mind, and investigate how to manipulate puppetry performance using video editing tools such as After Effects tracking and compositing. Basic understanding of video editing is suggested but not required.
