Julie Taymor, the director of the acclaimed Broadway hit The Lion King, here creates an extraordinary kind of visual theatre using puppets, masks and music.

The sculptor Nancy Graves wears a hard hat, works with cranes and often finds her material on the street. Here she gives a dramatic introduction to how sculptors work with balance, often in gravity defying ways.

Carrie Mae Weems, the photographer and folklorist, shows how to use composition and content to create meaning in a photograph. William Wegman also helps out by focusing on one of his playful Weimaraner dogs!

Behind the Scenes brings the magic-and the mystery-of artistic creation to video. Hosted by magicians Penn and Teller, this award-winning series goes behind the scenes to discover the creative process with renowned artists.
