Talk to the Hand
Iestyn (Yes-tin) Evans
Talk to the Hand is the award winning puppetry production company based in London, established in 2005, whose characters have delighted audiences on the BBC, the Disney Channel, Milkshake! and Sky Arts, with clients including Working Title, Hat Trick, Kids TV, Lego, Endemol, Ragdoll and the Jim Henson Company.
Co-founders Iestyn Evans and Andy Heath are renowned puppeteers in their own right, who have twice been nominated against one another in the Children’s BAFTAs. The current score is 2-0 to Andy. Fortunately for Iestyn, they won a Royal Television Society Award together for Talk to the Hand’s work on the BBC puppet sitcom ‘Mongrels’.
The quality of their work owes as much to their expertise as consultants and coordinators at seamlessly integrating their creations into productions, as it does to their skills as character designers and puppeteers.
Talk to the Hand Productions has its own slate of entertainment and educational projects in development, and we are currently in discussions with partners in the UK and internationally to bring them to life. We are always keen to meet and build relationships with new collaborators.
We firmly believe that there is nothing which puppetry cannot achieve, and set out every day to prove that to ourselves, and the rest of the world.
