The Kid Should See This

Puppeteer Barnaby Dixon’s new puppet concept

Puppeteer and puppet designer Barnaby Dixon developed a brand new design for his finger puppet concept, refining its internal mechanisms and improving its movements. Using his human hands in a new configuration, he’s not only able to make the puppet dance and gesture in human ways, but he’s also able to make it point and pick up things with its puppet hand.

Bonus: Like a Pixar animation come to life, watch it dance to piano music.

Next: Ricky Syers and his handmade marionette of Doris Diether, Laika’s Head of Puppetry explains how stop motion puppets are made, and War Horse and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
