Subject: [Puptcrit] shadows outside in daylight

This may seem an unusual query, but I have been wondering about the 
possibility of doing a shadow show outdoors in the daytime.  I was wondering 
if anyone has tried this.  It seemed that if the screen was in shade and a 
strong light was shone on a white screen from behind (or the sun) and the 
puppets were in front rather than behind the screen that it might be 
possible.  I have tried shadow effects outdoors in heavily shaded areas in 
the past and was not satisfied with the results, but that was with the 
shadows behind the screen in the traditional fashion.  They were visible but 
very washed out.  Anyone want to weigh in on this idea?  I'm sure the idea 
has been explored before....
