Nothing can replace the atmosphere of a life performance, and the magical interplay between performer, puppet and audience. But Television can bring the wonderful world of puppets towards a larger audience, which might otherwise never have a chance to be exposed to the art of Puppetry and Theater.
After his first Television assignment of building and manipulating the legendary Paper Peter in eight TV episodes, Bernd Ogrodnik has created and operated Puppets for a variety of commercials, TV spots and one more episode.
Having specialized in wood-carved puppets, that bring about a feeling of strength, value and integrity, he never tires to develop new styles and mechanisms to suit the individual project.
Just as puppets have found their way into education and therapy, advertisement agencies have long discovered their unlimited creative potential. For Puppet-Artists the world of commercials has brought wonderful opportunities to showcase their craft and creativity to meet the most unusual challenges.
The puppets of Bernd Ogrodnik and his Figura have been featured in various powerful campaigns.
