About PuppetVision

PuppetVision is all about puppetry in film, video and (especially) on the web. Began in 2004, in its original incarnation PuppetVision was a daily blog that highlighted all of the unique and interesting work that was emerging from puppetry artists around the world. In the fall of 2009 I made the decision to stop writing the blog daily in order to devote more time to my own personal puppetry work, but I continue to update it as often as my frequently hectic schedule allows.

About Andrew

I’m a puppeteer, indie filmmaker and occasional web developer.¬† My professional career began at eighteen with Canada’s acclaimed Famous PEOPLE Players, where I spent four years and perform in close to 1,000 black light puppetry shows throughout Canada and around the world. Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to build, direct and perform puppets throughout Canada and the United States, as well as in far-flung places like Chile, Japan, Taiwan, Mexico and South Africa.

Most of my time these days is devoted to working Unraku, a studio I co-founded with several other artists that specializes in creating puppet films and videos. I’m also¬† periodically employed as a consultant on various film and new media projects and often give workshops and lectures about puppetry and its role in film, video and at schools and conferences across North America.

I currently reside in Toronto with my indie rockstar brother, his morbidly obese cat, an adorable, but neurotic Schnauzer and another dog who’s actually kind of a jerk.
