In collaboration with Curious Pictures, two human-size foam latex, half-body puppets with live hands were created to promote The Ninth Judgment by James Patterson. The concept centered on a realistic caricature puppet (James Patterson) and an obsessed and adoring fan, Josie.
Puppet Heap designed and built both caricatures and provided on-set support during production.
