I'm Andy. I'm a London-based director, creative producer, writer and consultant working across theatre, film, and events. I work with puppets a lot.
I have worked on plays, installations, parades, youth theatre, and community projects. I have directed Dance for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad and created puppetry for TV. I was Associate Director of War Horse in the West end from 2015-2016.
Most recently I created the puppetry for the music video for Coldplay's song "Daddy" with Aardman Animations. Read more here.
I am one half of production company Brunskill and Grimes Ltd.
I have worked with animation and production companies including Aardman Animations, Blink Studios and Riff Raff and most of the major theatres in the UK including the National Theatre, Young Vic, Old Vic. I have also worked at universities and drama schools including Mountview, East 15, GSA and St Mary’s.
I am an Artist Advisor for Jerwood Arts: a group of artists invited for their skills and expertise to contribute to identifying talent, supporting selection and decision making processes, their experience highlighting the breadth of artistic practices Jerwood Arts supports.
I'm always interested in meeting new people and working with different collaborators across different mediums. If you like what you see, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.

I'm represented by Sam Tooby at Simon & How Associates.
