What are we?
A part of Heather Henson's Ibex Puppetry, Handmade Puppet Dreams is a traveling film series that promotes independent artists exploring their handmade craft specifically for the screen. These films all focus on real-time puppetry, and allow artists to build their vision, and then breathe life into their dreams.
Founded in 2004, Handmade Puppet Dreams now includes seven main volumes of films, two volumes for families, and many unique collections. With this series, Heather Henson (along with Sam Koji Hale and Alex U. Griffin) have set out to showcase a new generation of puppeteers and puppet artists who embrace film as a medium for artistic expression.
