TDPS458U
Special Topics in Advanced Performing Arts; Puppet Cinema: When Film & Puppetry Meet on Stage
Credits: 1 - 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Students must pay a $25 course fee. Using puppetry and live-feed cinematography, this course will explore the question of how we tell stories. We will investigate both practical and theoretical studies of these engaging multi-disciplinary mediums inside and outside of class. It takes a delicate balance to juggle two very different but complimentary mediums. For visual inspiration, we will look at works by Jim Henson, Julie Taymor, Hugo & Ines, The Quay Brothers, Philippe Genty, William Kentridge, Hotel Modern, Paul King, Basil Twist and so much more. There is an expectation that you will also bring in sources for the class to examine. The class will be part lecture based part studio work. We will devise theater exercises and create filmed presentations of art work in class, both in and out of class, individually and in small groups. Both the Midterm and Final Exams will be performance/film based.
