The study aimed to determine the elicitation of individual emotional response through shadow projection, and to recognize if there is a significant difference between male and female emotional response upon presentation of such stimuli.  The descriptive research design was used to establish the affective component of the target respondent. The researchers believed that projection of shadows or series of animated shadows can be a tool to elicit emotional arousal or response from individual when expose to shadow stimuli.  Respondents were selected using the stratified random sampling method among high school students (N-131), and were assembled for 3-5 minutes visual presentation of a themed animated shadow using a projector device. Series of shadows are projected and after each session, students were requested to accomplish questionnaire which is the main data gathering tool to confirm whether the projected shadows have an emotional effect. In the course of the shadow presentation, students-respondents were earnestly watching each session coupled with occasional burst of noise in reaction to projected shadow scenes, suggesting that the shadow stimuli have emotional effects.  Results revealed that shadow projections have an effect on students-respondents, signifying an elicitation of emotional response.  Statistically, significant difference between male and female responses is apparent.
