Good to see you here. I have been a fan of your work for ages.

It would be great to get some insight into the real professional field of puppetmaking and puppeteering.

No I don't perform live currently.
I mainly make custom marionettes for the media but I do have some marionettes which I hire out if commissions are too expensive.
I puppeteer when filming is needed although it's not that often.
I'm trying to build a company/studio like yours, only concentrating on marionettes (although i do shadow puppetry too) and to be honest I really prefer making carved wooden marionettes, but that would shrink a small market to an almost nonexistent one.

Most of the commissions I get are for Thunderbird/Team America style marionettes.
I have worked for BBC,ITV,C4 etc and various marketing/advertising companies etc but would appreciate any tips on how to develop this further.

I am currently redesigning www.companyofmarionettes.com but also have www.tonysinnett.co.uk where I sell marionettes, some of my making but mostly decorative ones imported from Prague.

Would love to see a picture or two of your marionettes if you have any.

Hello Darryl,
Yes, I seem to be back on the puppet scene, again. I hope to make it down to the May Fayre if you are going. Maybe see you there.
Best wishes,

Hi. Thanks for enquiring. I won't have a performance in London for a good time, as I'll be performing abroad, and I'm also dedicating for now to finish the work on new pieces. But maybe we can meet up at some point around London. My phone 07714508280. keep in touch. Best. Jose
