ForbTim Burton’s animation film, I worked in the puppet department under Andy Gent, improving the armature of Sparky the dog. It was first designed by Mackinnon & Saunders, but such a small creature is tricky for the animators to use. It needed the input and testing of Andy Gent’s team to get it right over three months.

Then I moved to the the rigging department under master rigger Richard Blakey where Sparky needed his treadmill improved, and on to many other rigs.
