IDEA ONE – How to Create a Backdrop
Step 1 – Draw round your puppet theatre on the card. This will ensure the backdrop is exactly the right size.
Step 2 – Cut it out. Draw your backdrop on the card – this will how the audience where the action is taking place.
Step 3 – Colour it in and repeat as many times as you like for different places!
IDEA TWO – Pop-Ups and Drop-Ins
Attach string to set pieces you create so they can pop-up from behind objects.
Do this by taping the string on the side you won’t see.
IDEA THREE – Use Layers
Create backdrops, pop-ups and drop-ins which add layers to your action – these different reveals can help the action move from place to place!
