Dan Field has been creating puppets for stop-motion animation and live action performance for over 15 years. Since graduating from the University of Connecticut with a BFA in Puppet Arts, his stop-motion fabrication career has encompassed television series, commercials, promotional videos, and independent films. He has also created puppets for live performance that have appeared in venues ranging from Broadway to a world tour with the musician Beck.

In 2005, Dan joined Shadow Animation in Los Angeles as the Lead Character Fabricator for projects including, "Moral Orel," "Titan Maximum," and the Emmy Award winning "Robot Chicken." This position afforded him the opportunity to pursue his interest in the development of new techniques, and to research and implement the use of many new materials in puppet fabrication.

Dan has expanded this exploration by studying 3D modeling while pursuing his MFA in Animation at Savannah College of Art and Design. He hopes to continue pushing the boundaries of animation, whether in a digital or traditional environment.
