James Retter Duncan Actor Puppeteer Movement Specialist

Actor Movement Specialist Puppeteer

I am a performer dedicated to all aspects of movement, puppetry, motion capture, live skins, suits and creature movement.  I have worked for and alongside some of the world's top creature creators, puppet builders, storytellers and producers. I've been involved in almost every aspect from research and design, to consulting and performance in  some of the industries most notable shows. While balancing working on 2 continents I continue to be driven by a genuine fascination (slash obsession) and a love of all things movement and puppetry. Whether working on new developments or large scale productions I remain thankful to have these rare creative experiences. . (I am also a huge action figure geek...)
