Rachel’s Madcap Theater: Meet the Puppets

I am pleased to say that Rachel’s Madcap Theater, directed by Joey Laura, has been successfully filmed and is now in the midst of post-production editing and sound. It was such a pleasure to work on this short film. Now a few months removed from the project, I am in such awe of our puppets. Laura Sumich and I crafted 4 puppets together and I made an additional 2 monsters (you know, for good measure…) with Diane Galatowitsch. I am so grateful to Laura and Diane for all of their hard work and insight and am thrilled with how everything came together. Photos by Noell Dominick.

This one is my favorite. I imagine it being the book cover for Brick’s memoirs and title of his lecture circuit. Brick (voiced by Jacob McManus)
