In the Hands of Puppets

Animation and effects, Sarah & Charles, 2019


In the Hands of Puppets is an animated short by artist duo Sarah & Charles. In this ten minute animation, characters designed by Lindert Steegen converse with an animated CGI handpuppet.

The characters by Lindert were converted to 3D models using most of the original drawings as textures. The puppet was designed, modeled and animated in maya using a ‘hand’ performance by Caroline Daish who also provided the voice of the character.

A variety of effects such as fire and water were also added to the video.
