Cameron Chittock

Director, Animator

After helping out on Peter Jackson's debut feature Bad Taste, Cameron Chittock went on to design and help create 90+ puppets for Jackson's ambitious creature feature Meet the Feebles. Since then, Chittock has worked on children's shows for TV3, and created and directed a range of animated TV shows — including claymation export Oscar and Friends and Australian-Singapore co-production Bottle Top Bill.  

They wanted to do it low budget and I was a bit worried about that, because I knew from experience that making puppets is hard work. But anyway, they talked me into it ... that experience of having the opportunity to design the puppets for that film and lead the workshop was a major break for my career.
