Paper Theatre After Dark: Part Two

This is three of five posts in the series My Stint in Packer Country.

Mr. Sommers worked with art students to animate 2-D imagery using elements of puppetry and shadow theatre with overhead and opaque projectors. The workshops culminated with a public performance where students exhibited their animations in downtown Green Bay. I participated alongside students both in the workshops and performances, and the experience of working in methods unfamiliar to us (using low-tech animation, and working under tight time constraints) and performing in front of an audience was immensely rewarding.
