Went round to Richard’s today to practice storytelling with shadows. He has a vast collection of cut-outs, all stored meticulously – the smaller ones are in labeled folders, the larger ones in bags. Have to say my favourites might be these huge puppets which he’s using to make his current feature film, ‘Wolfskin’.
Meanwhile we experimented with various different kinds of shadows and shapes – putting the images to work for the story rather than just being a pretty backdrop. We’ll be performing it this September at The Cinema Museum.
