Introduction

I have worked with Peter O’Rourke; designer and director. As a part of my studies, I played the main character, “Charlie” from the puppet show “A Message From The Sea”, which was staged at the Little Angel Theatre and toured around primary schools in London during 2019 – 2020. I am a talented and passionate puppet maker with a keen interest in delicate-style puppetry. I worked hard to accomplish wonderful and inspiring theatrical productions and always challenged myself to explore different possibilities from various fields such as applied puppetry and the creation of puppet figures. I also have a strong interest in applied theatre and my current focus is working on stop motion animation.
 

Explosive Arrangements [2018]

Introduction
This was a showcase displaying several pieces of performance in different presentations such as performance art and puppetry. Millie and I built “Billy”, to show a puppet that had become self- aware and was pulling himself apart. This was a short performance that was meant to symbolize how the lack of control was complete control of personal life.

Produced by Millie Wise, Rachel Coleman, and Yonghan Yao

A Man Called Ove [2020]

Introduction
A Man Called Ove is a Stop Motion Animation Project based on Fredrik Backman’s novel ‘A Man Called Ove’. This is a project to produce a short trailer which presents two scenes of the original story. Due to the Covid-19, the project has been delayed. Currently, it is still in the process of shooting and will be completed in the near future.

Animatic
This is a scene of Ove waking up early in the morning as usual and he found everything around him in the house which made him recall the days when Sonja was still alive.
