A puppeteer is a person who makes an inanimate object, such as a puppet, in real time to create the life for that object. The puppeteer may be visible to or hidden from the people. A puppeteer can handle a puppet indirectly by the use of strings, rods, wires, electronics or directly by his or her own hands placed inside the puppet or holding it externally. Some puppet styles are usually require puppeteers to work together as a team to create a single puppet character.

There are a wide range of styles of puppetry but whatever the style, the puppeteer’s role is to handle the physical object in such a manner that the people who seeing believes the object is real with life. In some instances the persona of the puppeteer is also an important feature.
