Super-fans of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings or Chronicles of Narnia? This class will explore narratives about fantastical beasts and magical worlds, discussing how puppets, sets, and special effects all work together to create magic on film. After looking at our favorite magical tales, students will write their own scripts, design costumes and props, and learn live action filmmaking techniques to finish a collaborative film that can be later shared with family and friends!
