In 1998, I designed, coordinated, built, and was head puppeteer for a project for Spark Design Inc., which was part of an in-store multi-media promotional video for the Footlocker chain of stores. We shot the puppet part in an ad hoc studio space in an empty store in the huge Palisades Parkway mall.

The "puppets" for this project were athletic shoes fitted with rods so they could be manipulated from below in precise choreography to a pre-recorded musical track.
