Myra Su

This hands-on workshop serves as an introduction to accessible puppetry styles and techniques that work well in film animation. We will be looking at 2D puppet fabrication and manipulation using tools and materials that are easy to find at home. We will also briefly touch upon camera and computer software tips and tricks. Participants do not need any prior puppetry, animation or illustration experience for this workshop.
Myra Su is a puppetry artist based in Chicago. Her work includes experimentations with shadow puppetry, 2D paper puppets, crankies, bunraku, and video animation. She mainly creates work for the stage, with her work often mixing video with live performance.
