This entertaining lecture has been
choreographed to be presented on a proscenium stage. It's designed to
give the public a better understanding and awareness of puppetry, in particular, the
lost artistry of marionettes, and is highly recommended once they've seen our
production "Suspended Animation". During this presentation,
Phillip will show all aspects of his creative process. The opening video delivers a
brief history of Phillips career spanning movies, TV and theater. An Optional 3 vignette performance can be included if
this lecture. Following is a video segment entitled
"Making of a Star" which covers the design,
construction, costuming, and rehearsal process leading to the development of his
portrait puppet "Nicole"
(inspired by Natalie Cole). This is all narrated live by Phillip Huber.
Questions and answers are welcomed as Phillip reveals in the final segment, "the tricks
of the trade" in a live demonstration of several marionettes. A short
picture-taking session is always available at the close of the lecture. The
running time for this presentation is approximately 1 hour.
Note: Aspects of
this presentation can be incorporated into our production "Suspended
Animation" to create up to 105 minutes of entertainment.
