As a designer in theatre, I enjoy the element of play, and believe a performance should be just as interactive for the audience as it is for the performers. In my work I like to look at space, how it changes in a performance, how it effects a performance and try to incorporate it into the narrative as much as possible.
I am a hardcore puppetry and mask enthusiast. I have worked for theatre companies such as 'Pointed Arrow' and 'Hope Street Limited', as well as TV 'BBC Horizon' and most recently Music Videos. I like to experiment with different styles of puppetry, also fusing styles together. Most of my work is made from recycled materials as I think it gives a fantastic old haggard dimension to the work.

I'm very excited about it.
My initial idea was to have a Lotte Reiniger style animation video, but after coming up with interesting drawings and colours, I have decided for it to look more like her later work with colour.
Here's a sneaky peek at the storyboard and my drawings so far.
As with all of my work being made from recycled and found objects, I thought it would be really good to have the 'world' made from cardboard. This also creates a simple solution to recording the film as the parts can be used over again in different orders.
Here are a few ideas of how the strangers will look. Their eyes are made from camer lenses, similar to that from the film '9'.
