Clifford The Big Feature Film!

This summer I got to run around New York City with the new “Clifford The Big Red Dog” live action feature film. I was hired to perform all the reference puppetry for the dog himself alongside the likes of John Cleese, Rosie Perez, Jack Whitehall, Horatio Sans, David Allen Grier, our inimitable child stars Darby Camp and Izaac Wang, and many more! It was a fun summer filming all over the city and I can’t wait to see what movie magic they perform to bring this story to the big screen.
