I was asked to build a prop puppet dummy for the tv show Benidorm, for tiger aspect. It unusually had to look like a slightly odd, fan made dummy, that had a resemblance to Shane Ritchies character. It also needed to look a bit like paper mache but in fact was latex and foam because it had to be thrown and pulled apart and hit a woman in the face. there were two identical puppets made. one as a hero and one that would come apart to be destroyed repeatedly.
I am a professional puppet maker and creature creator. I design, illustrate, sculpt and fabricate. With a past background in performance as both an actor and puppeteer. I develop characters and build puppets, I always approach the project from the point of view of the performer. I strive to build characters that are engaging and believable, whilst making them a joy to perform; allowing the puppeteer to get the maximum, most versatile performance out of them. I have worked in puppets and creature FX for a number of years; spanning TV, Film, theatre and online mediums. Please do take a look through my galleries: puppets, Illustration, sculpture, Design or you can look over my experience to see some of the clients and projects I have worked on over the years. if your interested in any of my work please don’t hesitate to contact me.
