The Puppet Forge...
The Puppet Forge is owned and operated by Gordon Smuder and is located in Minneapolis, MN.
Established at the turn of the century, The Puppet Forge specializes in making and performing puppets for television, film, and web applications. But it didn’t start there.
Gordon began a career in Special Visual Effects in 1991 and worked for dozens of advertising agencies and hundreds of national business clients providing high-detail props, miniatures, and effects for 25 years.
Being a specialist in physical effects, the profound changeover to digital made Gordon’s retirement from special effects and the switch to puppetry an eminently logical move.
So The Puppet Forge was born.
Dedicated to getting a puppet on every hand and in every tv show, The Puppet Forge forges forward!
