Shadow Puppets

Dexter And The Dragon


A couple of years ago, I collaborated with another student named Ben Boothman to create a shadow puppet show. I decided to make this shadow puppet story after listening to a song called 'Mykonos' by The Fleet Foxes. In my head I felt it could fit perfectly with the story I had in mind and began to make a story fitting to the song. Almost like a music video for said song. I created the puppets and moved them for the story whilst Ben recorded. We edited together, although his graphic skills played a big part and he put the clips together very well. 




There was a few things we had hoped to do during editing which we were unsuccessful in. For example, when the priest raises his hand a bolt of lightening should miss the dragon and strike the dead knight, which would explain that scene better. Ignoring these small factors I feel it was successful and in the short amount of time we had to make this video it turned out better than I could have expected.
