TransPennine Express TV advert

At Mountview, Brunksill and Grimes came in to do a 10 day puppetry project with our course, they were very pleased with what I had created so invited me to complete 3 weeks work experience with them over the summer. We were creating 20-25 puppets for a train company advert, all of which were normal everyday objects which had been brought to life e.g. a bucket, a laptop, a torch etc. While I was there, I developed my skills in using foamboard and accurately followed advice and instructions to make a second bucket puppet as a back up for the first. I also helped to cut out and glue the 60+ arms/hands and legs/feet that were needed in addition to adding detail to other puppets including the torch. My other duties included completing any shopping for materials or tools that anyone needed throughout the process.
