FILM + TELEVISION
The Shivering Truth
Puppet Sculptor & Fabricator
I sculpted characters and other puppet assets working from character designs or photo references of a real person, often working with Director Cat Solen to create a combination of both.
I also worked as a fabricator, creating costumes, armatures and other assorted puppet assets throughout the course of the production.
I painted the tea set and spoon used in a short animation for
Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions
Junior Costume Fabricator
I patterned and built costumes for 2 characters (TBA), assisted in creating the original costume for Adelina Fortnight and was responsible for duplicating costumes for both Sir Lionel Frost and Mr. Link himself, among other characters. My tasks also included dying, leatherworking, creating digital embroidery, troubleshooting movement and performing puppet maintenance, including shot-specific adjustments
Kubo and the Two Strings
I trained in the Costume and Hair & Fur departments during the production of this film. I created duplicate costume pieces for Kubo puppets and completed puppet maintenance work
Happy Honda Days
For two years now I have worked with a small team created new puppets, puppet assets and duplicated existing designs for the "Happy Honda Days" commercials. My tasks included armature design and fabrication, molding & casting, painting, applying and styling fur to animal puppets, and refurbishing puppets from previous years. I fabricated the bear puppet in the video above from start to finish.
