Featuring the voice talents of George Takei, Whoopi Goldberg, Freida Pinto, and other top names in Hollywood, Yamasong — from director Sam Koji Hale — looks to revitalize the fantasy puppet movie genre. So it is very exciting to present this NOC exclusive behind-the-scenes video spotlighting the women who are bringing the world of Yamasong to life!
Last month, we brought you the trailer and poster for the upcoming fantasy film Yamasong: March of the Hollows. The film, which is a follow-up to a 2010 short, seeks to bring puppetry back to mainstream genre audiences with an all-star cast and backing from a couple of dynastic names in the world of cinematic puppetry.
In 2010, Los Angeles-based filmmaker Sam Koji Hale released an award-winning and critically acclaimed short film called Yamasong that featured Japanese-style puppetry set to the pulsating rhythm of the contemporary taiko group On Ensemble. Now, five years later, Hale has returned to the world of Nani and her tortoise compatriot Shojun in the full-length feature Yamasong: March of the Hollows. Only this time, he’s backed by an all-star voice cast and the scions of two legendary puppeteering families: Heather Henson and Toby Froud.
