There's a Thing in There is an Orlando-based puppetry production company. Our scope of works includes live theatre, walk-around characters, and film.
We emphasize non-traditional storytelling and character design and narratives that are inspired by mythology and the subconscious.
Jack Fields has been creating puppetry since 2007. He has earned two United Arts of Central Florida grants, both for the creation of puppet films. His first film, Happy Memories, has been accepted into 15 film festivals. His music video for a They Might Be Giants contest was one of three winners selected from one hundred fifty entries by John Hodgman. Jack has received two scholarships: one from Puppetfest Midwest, and one from UNIMA, which allowed him to stay with Luman Coad, who helped him develop the story for Hey Einstein.
Hannah Miller has earned two United Arts of Central Florida grants for puppetry. She won a grant to develop new work from Puppeteers of America, and the prestigious J.R.
