GEAHK BURCHILL

Puppeteer, writer, director, costumer and multi-media artist. I have dabbled in mediums across drawing and illustration to sculpting and woodworking. I've always been attracted to trying new mediums and new materials, unable to settle on any one material or art form. Discovering puppetry, I found that every artform that had ever interested me could be applied to it. Storytelling, voice acting, painting, foley, sewing, performance. It satisfied my interest in constantly learning new skills. I’m sort of a puppetry proselytizer now, excitedly introducing others to this never ending art form.

For clients like: Altoids, Benadryl, Brooks, Chriss Angel, Libby's, Nike SB, GlaxoSmithKlein, Oregon Lottery, Old Spice, Pfriem, Pratham UK, Portland Opera, Proctor & Gamble, Pok Pok, Scope, SIFF, Vans, & many other companies and individuals in film, theater & advertising

 

For more about my personal journey and experience

 

I make stuff, it’s what I do. At an intersection between storytelling and engineering. The highly technical as a collision against the animal form...
