Celebrity Marionettes and Empowerment Marionettes

 The Process Genii Has Used To Create More Than 5,000 Marionettes

     Here are steps in the creation process showing the latest celebrity marionette of Ellen Degeneres. Enjoy!

Step 1: In the beginning. . . Genii models a
clay head of the subject that she designs
using photos and video clips.

Step 2: Genii pours mannequin rubber
into the plaster mold.

Step 3:  Genii Pulls the raw head out of the mold.

Step 4: Genii shapes and sands the head and hands.

Step 5: Genii paints the face and makes
 it ready for eyes.

Step 6: Genii creates the body and
 then costumes the marionette.

Step 7. Then Genii "Wigs Out" and adds hair.

Step 8: Genii strings the marionettes. (The reason there are two marionettes is that the Imagination Center gifts the celebrity with one and the other one is used to raise funds for charity.)

                                                   Dancing Along with Ellen Degeneres! 

This original, hand crafted marionette created by master marionette artist Geniiland of Sedona, Arizona that she gave to Ellen is a one-of-a-kind collectible.

Genii operated Geniiland near Hollywood for over 18 years. She has created over 5,000 marionettes including many celebrities such as Sammy Davis Junior, Carol Burnette, Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand, Oprah, Barry Manilow, Whoppi Goldberg,  Deepak Chopra, Billy Crystal and now Ellen Degeneres whom she loves dearly and she watches the show every day . . .

Now Genii and her company's, (the Imagination Center, Inc. and Imagination Celebration Unlimited LLC) and three affiliated non-profit organizations are planning to build an Imagine That! Theater in Sedona, AZ that will feature six theaters in one building and a cast of hundreds of marionettes.

The project team is also developing edutainment programs to foster youth leadership development and empowerment. Genii is creating marionettes of some of the top authors, success coaches and trainers in the world such as Deepak Chopra, Les Brown, Mark Victor Hansen, Wayne Dyer, Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, etc.

The new "Faculty Members" will deliver their empowering and motivating messages for youth in person and through their marionettes in interactive DVD training programs also featuring Imaginella and her multi-cultural friends.

Which celebrity would you like to have come to your home to live? 

The ultimate vision of the Imagination Celebration Unlimited LLC (ICU) is to help millions of people, especially youth, learn how to tap their creative imagination and realize more of their full potential. We publish, produce and distribute transformational, edutainment programs, products and services, partly through a network of not-for-profit Imagine That! Theaters. ICU is developing innovative multimedia educational programs featuring Imaginella and marionettes of some of the world’s top authors, coaches and trainers who are partnering with the company to help enhance youth empowerment and leadership development.

Can you imagine how many thousands of hours Genii has devoted over the years as she created over 5,000 marionettes??? 

Now Genii and the ICU team are creating innovative interactive multimedia edutainment programs using marionettes of world-class trainers such as Les Brown, Mark Victor Hansen and Deepak Chopra.



These edutainment programs will help children (of all ages) learn how to tap their creative power of imagination as they discover and manifest their ultimate destiny.
The marionettes of these "success coaches" will deliver their program content to Imaginella™ and her multi-cultural extended family.
