Shadow Puppets

The first of our special projects was held in early April 2016 and involved participants working with local visual artist Richard Redwin and other members of the Rideout team to create three short films. The process involved drama games and exercises, storyboarding, creating and operating shadow puppets, and the creation of a stop-motion animation.

The trilogy of films, The Autistic Bee, Hat Chat, and The Legend of the Pit and the Troll are available to view below.

During the making of these films, BBC Radio Stoke’s Tim Wedgwood came to find out what we were up to. Here is the film he made about us.
