Short Film Of The Day: Puppet

Why Watch? We’re winding down Muppet Week on SFOTD with a short film that isn’t obviously influenced by Jim Henson‘s creations. It’s a different style (fluid animation), and it’s not the same tone (darkly sardonic), but this short work from Patrick Smith features something that a lot of creatives have battled with: the internal struggle of the artist with his art work.

In this case, they’re puppets. That take control.

Would it be fun to see this done with Beaker? You bet.

What does it cost? Just 6 minutes of your time.

Check out Puppet for yourself:

PUPPET (2006)

Trust us. You have time for more short films.
