Halogen lamps project crisp shadow images and add amazing cinematographic techniques to shadow puppetry. With these as your light source you can zoom from longshot to close-up, layer multiple images, create negative or light images, travel through landscapes, and much-much more.  Morning: Build your own halogen lamp.  Afternoon: Use your lamp in guided experiments to create amazing shadow images.

To see some of the cool things possible, visit this YouTube of a halogen lamp show David, of Puppetmongers, made a few years ago:

David Powell, a co-founder of Puppetmongers Theatre, has been involved with all levels of production: design, scripting, construction, marketing, touring, performing and administration.  With Puppetmongers, he has created eleven new theatre works, toured extensively nationally and internationally, and received awards from both the theatre and puppetry communities in Canada and the USA. David’s other work has included design and building puppet, sets, masks and props for many theatre companies.  He created Shuttle Dreams, a new-music shadow play with musicians Scott Wilson and Daria Kwiatkowska.  He has taught puppetry arts at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto, York University, University of Windsor, University of Guelph, the Toronto Teachers’ College, and at several C.O.D.E Conferences.
