Puppetmongers greatly enjoy working on other people’s projects:  Here is some of what we have done in film and video so far.


WE WERE THE PUPPETRY DEPARTMENT for the feature film Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.  Released for Christmas 2007, it was written and directed by Zack Helm, and starred Dustin Hoffman and Natalie Portman.

Stuffies – among the puppets we animated for Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium

For this major project we:

  • Were concept artists with the design and props departments.
  • Made models and action props.
  • Created, built and oversaw the construction of puppets and related set components.
  • Manipulated puppets on set.
  • Gathered together a team of 12 puppeteers, and orchestrated their availability and activity.
  • See the trailer on YouTube:  Magorium trailer
