Since i never made it to Hollywood, at least my puppet creation are trying. It's not Hollywood yet though. But for an austrian Movie Project i created a lifesized joint puppet together with the silicone artist Maria Grün. The puppet is the imaginary version of Alma Mahler, lover of Oskar Kokoschka.
It was a long project actually because at first Covid put everything on a one years break. After that we slowly started working on this puppet who was super tricky because she needed to be movable but not too movable. And realistic but also artistic.
We needed a lot of coffe meetings to figure things out.
The puppet itself also needed reassuring pep talks with friends.
