About Lesley-anne Rose:

Lesley-anne Rose is an independent film maker specialising in stop motion puppet animation, based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. As well as having an interest in bizarre and surreal stories, Lesley-anne works with people from diverse and underrepresented communities to tell the stories less commonly told,  teach animation basics and show people how they can be an agent in their own work: work that is theirs rather than based on them.


Lesley-anne is currently making a BFI funded short film, has made commissions for Broadcast TV and BBC learning sites as well as working with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Tate Britain, GemArts, the NHS Trust, Newcastle University and other cultural organisations in the UK. 

Lesley-anne was the first ever receiver of the Moving Parts Stop Motion Animation Commission in 2017, which can be watched here.

About the 'Talks with Practitioners' series

Join Moving Parts Arts for our online 2021 series of 'Talks with Practitioners'. Find out about the work of talented and varied puppetry and visual theatre artists, whilst having the opportunity to ask your burning questions. 

All sessions are free to book onto but there will be to opportunity to making a donation at the online event. 

The focus of the 2021 talks series is digital puppetry. Digital puppetry can be many things and is very much open to interpretation. A live-streamed show may use real puppets against the backdrop of a green screen. A handheld camera following a puppet-led story may take the audience on a journey not possible in a seated theatre. The puppets in the piece may be built by a 3D printer, laser cutter or exist only in virtual reality. Stop-motion animation passages may be infused with live puppetry. Digital puppetry can be low-fi or slick and shiny; can mix old techniques with new techniques and has the potential to reach new audiences.
