Animated Sequences for "White Raven"
This is about 30 seconds out of the three minutes of animated sequences I made for "White Raven", a BooTown shadow puppet theater production exploring the life of a bird born with the wrong color feathers.

"White Raven" featured three channels of live shadow puppeteering (performed by Lindsay Burleson, Jade Young, and Mauri Menjivar), with one screen intermittently showing stop-motion animation by me. I handled all design, fabrication and animation duties for the animated sequences.
Music in this mini cut is Black Ant: "1982" (CC BY), plus sound design by me. Music for the actual show was written and performed by Joe Wozny.

Creator/Director: Emily J. Hynds
Puppeteers: Lindsay Burleson, Jade Young, and Mauri Menjivar
Live Score: Joe Wozny
