A glowing puppy puppet by Barnaby Dixon

Adding to his cavalcade of original hand puppets, puppeteer and puppet designer Barnaby Dixon brings a glowing puppy puppet to life in the video above.

Controlled with two hands, with extra thought given to the puppy’s ears, tail, and anatomically correct stride, Dixon demonstrates how he moves the puppet to make it more real. “This one was a really challenging build, a lot of trial and error, and restarting on occasion too,” he explains.
