Belly

A dark tale with an explosive end.

Sailor Jerry just wanted to enjoy a sandwich on the open ocean but he forgot there is always a bigger fish. How unfortunate for him that those sharp teeth are the least of his worries. 

Belly is a puppet film; written, designed, fabricated, shot and edited entirely in 48 hours for the 2020 LA Puppetry Guild's 48 Hour Puppet Film Project.

Honorable mention

Sprout

Does love bloom eternal or do you need to shoot off after every new bud you see?

 

This one minute short film uses plant based puppetry to show what love means for the least assuming of our house mates. Created for the Raindance Film Festivals #lockdownlover 60 second film challenge. We used our own green lockdown companions to make a film about love loss and the kind of flings that have been impossible during the pandemic. We hope you share our love for our saucy and fertile friends!

Slingjaw Wrasse

Dive into a world of unique animal adaptation as we explore the lengths some fish will go to for a bite to eat. 

Based on the research of Dr. Mark W. Westneat, Slingjaw is a short science film that uses puppetry to explain how a little unassuming reef fish has evolved to use a complex bio-mechanism to catch fish. 

Worm

Just what are those early birds after? Come get your hands dirty with us as we dig into our community garden to find out. 

Worm is a short puppet film made for Take Art's 1 minute theater festival, aimed at celebrating socially distanced art in Somerset UK. The puppets were made at a  puppet play day early in the 2020 quarantine.  

Filmed in the Cliftonwood Community Garden.
