AxTelevision: Come Outta that Shell
Hey! What happens when you connect a puppet workshop with a television studio… and you get to help us make a show?
Grab some popcorn and hang on for a wild ride as creature designer Steve Axtell and his talented crew work with kids to build puppets, make sets, write music and use special effects to turn this wacky story into a movie!
There’s danger in the dark forest when Norman’s mission to rescue a runaway turtle ends up being the flight of his life!
This is the coolest children’s show I have seen.You get an inside view of what it takes to create a show with puppets. First you look at the woods used. Then you create scenery and decide what real life creatures you will model the puppets after. Finally, you get to look at what sound effects and music you want to use.
This adventure is great for kids. They learn a great deal about the “behind the scenes” work it takes to produce a puppet show and then they get to see the results. Great educational value!
