Worked on Yonderland for Sky TV for Baker Coogan productions as effects supervisor making some props and creating some daftness.
Worked at Artem as part of a team designing and making this pop-up and inflatable puppet, its part of the opening London Games. It lifted out of a bed that raised up and could rotate 360 degrees via people on the ground, one performer inside the body who lifted the body up and operated the arms and a mouth.
Helped creating this fabulous launch for Anya Hindmarch with her wonderful creative team of Bevan Roper and Matt Booth, my own excellent team working out of our Dalston studio we made the animatronics, installed the conveyor belt with the great help from James at Kbr machinery and made some nutty roaming cabinets with performers inside.
The animatronics are now in Paris and can soon be seen back in London in early March.

Spent three months working on the armature changes on the lead character Sparky under Andy Gents puppet hospital.
The original that was made by Richard at Mackinnon Saunders.
Then I moved to the rigging departmentworking under Richard Blakey. The whole experience was a great time learning and interacting with the skilled animators.
Big hopes for the final film.
This animatronic dress was for her tour, made with Vin Burnham through Jim Henson and Baker Coogan at Elstree Studios.
