about this episode
On this episode, we have an animated discussion with the one-and-only Jamie Bressler! An absolute power-house puppet builder, Jamie has built characters and props for the Jim Henson Company, Saturday Night Live, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and beyond. Her own work has earned her Comic-Con and Internet fame, creating on-model puppet versions of Disney and Pixar characters.
We talk to Jamie about how her training as a scenic designer evolved into a passion for puppetry, skills she learned from Puppet Kitchen and Bob Flanagan's Den Design Studio, and the experience of seeing her builds come to life on stage and screen. Join us for some great pointers on how to being your puppet building journey! PLUS: find out which guest-host kept breaking a sword Jamie built for SNL.
