The Sackboy puppet was built for this commercial that ran in prime time in the U.S on major networks for a number of months. It was part of the Little Big Planet series and was created as a launch of their Karting racing video game for the PlayStation 3.

Lost for Words
This short film was shot on location and in studio with an award winning commercial and music video director. I built and performed the raven puppet that resides in a forest world with magic and danger. It enjoyed a solid run on the festival circuit and combined traditional puppetry and digital enhancement to great effect.

Monster Factory is a character toy brand known for the design and production of plush monsters. Each monster comes with a write up that captures their character in one or two sentences. The write ups are very funny and are the introduction to a larger story waiting to be told. Monster factory decided to have puppets built of six of their characters and produce a web series. I built an awkward gang of teenager monsters named Colin, Todd, Andy, Sebastian, George and also performed the character Maggie. The monsters navigated high school with their signature look and engaging personalities.
Good Dog Henry
This puppet was built for a pilot web series that is currently in development. His wonky eye, blue fur and laid back attitude could be blessing your computer screens soon!

This television commercial was part of an anti-bullying campaign. The high school student undergoes a transformation in three stages represented by three puppets beginning with one in his own likeness and becoming more horrific. The first stage was a full standing three quarter size version of the actor. Each of the heads were sculpted, cast and injected with foam latex to create the skin-like appearance.
