Gabriel Anthony, who WOWed us with his black-light workshop, has offered to share his story creation knowledge, from his experience with Pixar and Disney.
Gabriel says: Let’s explore the secrets behind the success of the world’s leading animation studios! We’ll discuss story development, character development, and creativity and see what I’ve gleaned from my vast collection of “the Making of” books for films like “Toy Story,” “Frozen” and “Wall-E.”
Gabriel has been enthusiastically involved in puppetry for over 15 years, not including his younger years when he staged puppet shows from his bunk bed. He is the director of “Create, Minister, Teach!” – a creative ministry team in Daly City. They enjoy blending powerful stories with diverse art forms to present musical programs throughout the Bay Area. He has taught at regional, national and international conferences. He has also traveled to Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua and Ecuador for mission trips to equip locals with puppetry and creative techniques for working with their communities.
Judy Roberto, Imagination Shapes – A Paper Puppet Workshop. Judy brings a plethora of paper pieces, ready for you to create whatever your imagination can make of them. She challenges you to go several levels beyond your initial thoughts about what each shape is, to what else it could be. It’s all paper, all fun. Make more than one!
