We are very excited to present you, one of the oldest Chinese entertainments.
Shadow play (Chinese: 皮影戏, pí yĭng xì) or shadow puppetry is an ancient form of storytelling and entertainment with articulated figures to create the illusion of moving images. It is popular in various cultures. At present, more than 20 countries are known to have shadow show troupes.
Thanks to the functionalities of smart mobile devices we bring totally a new concept, a new way of making animation of shadow puppetry.
We bring a unique concept of making live animation by using the mobile’s screen “outwards” to an audience...
You only have to adjust the brightness of your mobile device, turn the lights off and feel the excitement of playing a puppet, a role, a character, a comedy, a theater.
One of the best thing is; no one will see you in the dark so you can be who ever or what ever you want more easily.
Specially among friends or family, with two or more persons playing puppets can even be more interactive and much more fun.
To reach a wider audience our apps. are also available for Tablet screens.
With our apps you can record with a simple webcam your own theatre play, stand up comedy or what ever you like and share it with your audiences and friends on internet like Facebook or Youtube.
Making an animation video has never been so easy...
Our goal is to expand the variations of new technologies into mobile devices and build a new bridge between puppet play and the world of animation.
We started with Shadow Puppetry because it is one of the oldest survived entertainment which deserves to be the first to come back into the light, after entertaining the world for so many centuries.
Our purpose is specially to support and bring a vibration of a culture, a history back to our century and the new generation.
Shadow Puppet Play China is only a start with 7 puppets. In time we will expand with more puppets from the rich world of the Chinese puppetry.
Anakule Studios invites you into a world of virtual puppets, a new era where you can animate and share it with the world.
