Myself.


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've been animating!

Here is a film of my first animation, made at Forkbeard Fantasy Summer School.
The quality of the video is bad as I have lost (whoops) the original copy and I filmed the screen with my camcorder!

I have tried to make a short (30second) clip of a background for 'Hansel and Gretel' when they get lost in the woods after their father leaves them for the second time. It was a very quick experiment, mainly to get myself used to using the animation programme. I used my production idea 'Hansel and Gretel' for most of the experiments I made at Forkbeard Fantasy.
