WHAT IS HYPERVYNORMA?
Miniature puppets, styled like Japanese vinyl toys and shot like a feature film

EXACTLY HOW MINIATURE ARE THE PUPPETS?
6.5 scale. The tallest is about 26cm, the shortest about 15cm

THAT’S VERY SMALL, HOW DO YOU OPERATE THEM?
With a range of small metal rods... and dexterous puppeteers

HAS ANYONE EVER DONE THIS BEFORE?
Amazingly no! The combination of scale, technique and result are absolutely unique!

IS THERE AND COMPUTER ANIMATION OR SPECIAL EFFECTS INVOLVED?
No, everything is ‘in camera’ in the manner of traditional film making

SO YOU BUILD ALL THE SETS?
All the interiors and exteriors are built in-house as architectural grade miniatures

TELL ME ABOUT THE VEHICLES?
All the cars are either scratch built or modified in 6.5 scale and each is fully radio controlled

SO HOW IS HYPERVYNORAMA FILMED?
Uniquely for puppets, it is shot and lit as a single camera, multi-angle shoot just as a feature film

SOME OF YOUR CHARACTERS LOOK VERY FAMILIAR?
No... they aren’t!
