    Love it! Am inspired to work with my small group of 9 and 10 year olds on a friday to make shadow puppets the theme for our next few weeks!

      That would be great – you’ve talked about shadow puppets for years! I do feel that there is much scope here to be developed and would be great to give it more time so pupils can really explore set building, character development, script writing etc. with more depth and focus. This does feel like a first sketch of what with time could be developed (though I love the energy and improvised nature of what the teenagers did). Also – i noticed on You Tube some shadow plays which were obviously shot on a much smaller scale – which might be easier! Thank you for the positive feedback – I will pass it on to the teenagers!

    it’s so impressive that the teenagers took ownership of the whole project and worked so marvellously together. The shadow puppets are wonderful and star in an original and extraordinary production – well done!
