Danny Miller is a Melbourne- based puppeteer and Maker. He sometimes makes puppets from old fence posts. He is also a vintage toy aficionado. When I talked with Danny he was back from touring with the hugely popular show, Walking with Dinosaurs. He has operated puppets on stage using both voodoo controls and hands on techniques. In this ThingMaking podcast he talks about what it is like to grow up in a creative family and his process of using materials to make marionettes like Nigel (seen above).
