WORKSHOP

Monitor Night with Puppet Kitchen (all ages)

Ongoing

Location: Digital Learning Suite

Join the Puppet Kitchen at the Museum of the Moving Image with special guest Tyler Bunch!

Have you ever wondered how the puppets you see on TV come to life? One of the secrets is in giving performers a look at what the camera sees through a live-feed video monitor.

At Monitor Night, we set up a few cameras and monitors so you can come learn about this technique alongside experienced puppeteers who come to hone their skills. Bring a puppet or use one of ours. All are welcome to play. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Be sure to check out the Jim Henson Exhibition at the museum to see where this technique began!

Tickets: $25 ($15 for Museum members). Order tickets online. (Members may contact members@movingimage.us with questions regarding online reservations.)
