Puppet Studio has been in business since 1984.  We’ve designed, built, created and operated every kind of puppet imaginable, from simple paper bag puppets (not kidding! paper bag puppets can be funny!) to giant animatronic puppets with multiple puppeteers for special effects master Rick Baker.  We also work on all kinds of projects, from broadband to blockbuster feature films.   Contact Puppet Studio and we’ll work with you to design, create and build a fantastic puppet for your project!

We can also work with your budget, and if we can’t, we’ll steer you in the right direction.

Puppet Studio is owned and operated by Greg Williams and Steve Sherman.  We’ve got years of experience in the entertainment industry, and we’ll deliver your project as agreed, on time and within budget. Seriously. We promise that we’re not Hollywood flakes!

In addition to puppets, Puppet Studio builds puppet-like costumes for Princess Cruises, Cher and Katy Perry.  When a dancer or puppeteer needs to dance with a puppet or puppet rig, or perform the puppet for a long period of time (sometimes in cramped quarters), the costume, puppet or rig needs to be light weight yet incredibly sturdy.   We understand this because we’re puppeteers. We’ve done our time scrunched under tables and with our arms over our heads for hours at a time. Sometimes non-puppeteers who build costumes, puppets and rigs don’t understand what it’s like to have to actually perform with it all day long.   That’s one big factor that differentiates Puppet Studio from a lot of other talented designers and builders….at Puppet Studio, we understand this, and we know how to get it done right.

We got into this business because of our interest in puppets, toys and animation.  Greg Williams started his puppeteer career at age 14 at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, and Steve Sherman has always loved and performed puppets.  Greg and Steve met while working with Sid and Marty Krofft, and remain trusted colleagues of the Kroffts to this day. [In case you’re curious about the Kroffts, they’re just as nice as you’d think they’d be and they each have hysterical, while different, senses of humor. ]
