After working in puppetry in his native Mexico, Ramon Rivero got his break co-commanding a menagerie of puppets on early Peter Jackson film Meet the Feebles. Later he spent four years at Weta Digital, developing real-time performance animation for Gollum and other motion captured characters. Rivero has since supervised animation and motion capture for companies in Australia and India, while developing his own projects.
In my screen career I've done a little bit of everything: from award nominated puppetry, to motion capture on Lord of the Rings, to now, creating animated heroes! Ramon Rivero, creator of Lou's Poopoppet
