I was tasked with designing and fabricating worm puppets to be used in the upcoming film "Borders of the Imagination" directed by Reuben Meltzer and written by Ben Friedman. 3rd puppet down design by Tanya Eker.

Aluminum wire and brass tubing was used for the armature, a combination of upholstery foam and medical wrap was used to build up the body, and a blend of latex paint, prosthetic aide and corn starch was used to achieve the exterior look.
