Over the past 48 years, internationally known  master puppetmaker/historian/performer Alan Semok has created hundreds of custom designed ventriloquial dummies, marionettes,  and puppets of all types used by professional  performers as well as in Motion Picture and Television projects worldwide.


In addition to his own creations, he is also widely acknowledged as the "go to" person for expert puppet repair and restoration work.


His projects have included work for: the late PAUL WINCHELL (ventriloquism giant)ROY CLARK (country music great)KEVIN SPACEY (academy award winner), the estate of the late KEN KESEY (literary legend and counterculture hero)TIM ROBBINS (acclaimed actor and director),  and the late BUFFALO BOB SMITH (TV pioneer & creator of Howdy Doody).


His work is also featured in a number of both major studio and independent film productions as well as in several notable puppet and memorabilia collections and museums including the Detroit Institute of Arts,  the Vent Haven Museum,  and David Copperfield’s International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts.

Whether you're a professional entertainer in need of top notch puppets for your act, a producer or production company with a Film or Television project in need of highly experienced consultant services or a "dummy" rental, or even if you need of the most effective and proven one-on-one ventriloquism lessons, coaching, and instruction using our own time-tested methods...we probably have what you need!!!
