We continued production today on a short documentary on Paperhand Puppet Intervention. Artists Donovan Zimmermen and Jan Burger create very cool and often very large puppets. For 10 years they have been using collected stuff and corn starch to build these constructions. They bring them to life by creating plays and art events based on environmental, social, and political themes.
Coe Douglas and I are co-producing a short film on Jan and Donovan and their work. Today we shot the main interview and B-roll footage with the help of Christian Parsons, 2nd camera, and Carolyn Deberry, production manager. It was a very inspiring day in in the heart of Saxapahaw.
