Robert Allsopp.

This is a shadow puppet video by Robert Allsopp for Kate Bush's 'Lake Tahoe' track from the album '50 words for snow'.
It perfectly illustrates why I love shadow puppets, they are so simple and yet there is a magic when you play with light, build flimsy shadows to weave into stories and dramas of fragile humanity.
Robert Allsopp initially studied theater design before apprenticing himself for three years to Martin Adams a jewelry prop maker, now Robert runs a diverse set/ costume and prop studio.
Thank you James Dorward.
