Steven Ritz-Barr - Theatrical puppetry on film
Through the simplicity and beauty of the marionette coupled with great stories, heroes, and ideas, quite simply, Steven wants to transport himself and his audience to another plane of reality.
His challenge is to bring the power of the live puppet performance to his films. Most of his work is based on classics literature. One reason for this is the staying power of the classics. He combines this stability with the staying power of the marionette-actor (puppets never age) and his formula for communication is set. His goal is to transform the viewers to a higher plane of humanity, through the simplicity and beauty of the marionette.
