I was hired as marionettist for the filming of a promo video for Modeselektor's new single, 'This' featuring Thom Yorke. It was shot in a beautiful house in Brighton. 'Billy' co-starred alongside Sheryl Lee in the video, which was produced by FutureDeluxe & Fractured Films. No puppets were permanently damaged in the making of this video although Billy did suffer the indignity of being thrown across a room! He has made a complete recovery and is looking forward to better treatment in his live theatrical endeavours.

'We're Puppeteers!' is a short-form children’s TV series made for Nickelodeon Jr. in conjunction with The Little Angel Puppet Theatre. The series started airing in September of this year. The puppets were designed and made by Sue Dacre and the series was directed by David Wachs of LRG Media Ltd. I was involved in making the bodies of the three puppets.

Another Suspense festival show I was involved with was 'Spirit' (a show created and devised by Susan Beattie and Kate Middleton), performed this time round at the Rosemary Branch Theatre. Susan very kindly asked me to puppeteer alongside herself and Beatrice Pentney and also commissioned me to make two marionettes, a boy and his mother, for a scene in the show. Here are some 'work in progress' shots of the puppets.
Following its successful run in Richmond, 'The Money Game' was staged again as part of the Suspense London Puppetry Festival. Here are some photos of the puppets in action!
Credits: The puppet Tom Wrigley was carved by Gren Middleton. Hair, costumes and masks by Juliet Rogers. Commissioned by Movingstage Marionette Company.
