With the help of a video from a YouTube Channel called, Jeremy Shaffer Origami, I learned how to make a flapping bat. The bat we need for Zagazoo has to be large, so I used a piece of paper 35" x 35" (more than three times the size of the paper used in the video below). I was a little skeptical about how it would work with roofing paper instead of traditional origami papperr, but I'm pretty pleased with the results. The extra weight gives the wings a graceful flapping motion that is going to look great on stage. Now I just have to paint it. Thanks, Jeremy! Shafer!
Sketch Up is a 3D drawing program. I tired it a a few years ago and gave up out of frustration, but thanks to a few online video tutorials, I was able to use it to start visualizing the set for the show. Here are two renderings I did to get a better sense of how much space we'll have on and off stage.
