Puppets created specifically for underwater performance
These puppets were created as prototype puppets for a larger-scale development of underwater puppetry work. The prototype puppet designs and manipulation were explored in the creation of a short film for the Bristol 48 hour Puppet Film Challenge, which was subsequently selected for screening at the Art Walk Porty: All At Sea international film night.
