UK Based Mimics Productions Ltd, specialist puppet designers and puppet makers of 3D character puppets. Puppet making, puppet building, unique puppets, maquettes, puppeteering and puppet voiceovers for television, video, entertainers, theatre, promotional advertising and education.

Sally Preisig of Mimics Productions is one of the UK's top puppet makers and has been making hand and glove puppets professionally for 20+ years. Her company, UK based Mimics Productions specialise in high quality, no fuss puppet making. All our puppets are visually appealing, comfortable to operate and durable. All puppets are bespoke, each hand crafted with great attention to detail, producing a good quality character. Only the finest and closest matched for purpose materials are used to create your puppet.

Having worked for many years as a TV puppeteer and puppet maker, Sally is very aware of the drawbacks of complex mechanisms; "We do not offer complex mechanism or animatronics. If they break down it can hold up an expensive shoot. Good puppeteers don't need mechanisms, and Jim Henson and company barely ever used them!"

Mimics Productions puppet makers create functional, easy to manipulate, characterful puppets. We do this in addition to incorporating the director's concepts and designer's needs. "We make puppets that have a great deal of character and all they need is a good puppeteer to bring them to life".

Professional puppet makers and TV Puppeteers like Sally can offer practical advice on the performance of the puppet and its ideal performance setting and detailed help during the whole commission process. We have proven success in creating characters for TV, stage and live shows. We can either work from an existing character concept and drawings or create a new one, specific to your requirements.

Often our clients may require changes of clothes, spare parts, custom made props, or bespoke scenery to support their new character. These we can also design for you and bring to life.

We offer a reduced rate for building a puppet if also asked to operate it.

Sally Preisig is recognised as one ot the UK's top puppet makers and has a long track record as a TV puppeteer & voice over artist. Sally is experienced in operating animatronics and complex mechanisms as well as hand puppets, glove puppets and string puppets.
