VS: Episode 290: Toby Philpott

Sometimes, genuine conversation brightens your day.  After a bad day, our day was brightened by talking to Toby Philpott. Toby is an English puppeteer, best known for his work in motion picture animatronics during the 1980s in such films as The Dark Crystal and Return of the Jedi.Toby was insightful, genuine, and hilarious.  We talk about everything from puppeteering  Jabba the Hutt, Toby’s early career in street performance, and what it was like to work for Jim Henson.  Such a fascinating interview.

 

We also talk about a brutal interview loss, get an update on Scott’s boozy friend Steve, and we look into the most isolated jobs.  Check it out!
