ABOUT THE 48hr PUPPET FILM PROJECT

The 48hr Puppet Film Project is an annual event produced by Alex U. Griffin through the LA Guild of Puppetry. For the past two years, it has also been sponsored by Heather Henson and the Handmade Puppet Dreams film series.  
 

This event first started in 2018 as an effort to spark creativity-through-challenge within puppeteers and filmmakers in the LA area by giving them just 48hrs to create a short film using our randomly-drawn theme, object, and action. Since then, the event has gone international and attracts submissions from participants from around the world!

Past judges have included Kirk Thatcher (The Muppets, Dinosaurs), Tim Lagasse (Crash & Bernstein, Helpsters), Trish Sie (Step Up: All In, Pitch Perfect 3), Heather Henson (IBEX Puppetry, Handmade Puppet Dreams), Christine Papalexis (Team America: World Police, Amaterasu), Bill Watterson (Dave Made a Maze, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Sam Koji Hale (Alien X-Mas, Yamasong: March of the Hollows), Liz Hara (Sesame Street, Life in Pieces) and Victor Yerrid (Crank Yankers, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance)
