From the director of past NYICFF favorites Lapsus and Journey to Mars comes a brilliantly executed, visually unique and immensely amusing stop motion short that took home the audience award at the prestigious Annecy Animation Festival.

The Maker Australia Animation, Christopher Kezelos, 2010, 5 min

In a dark room, a glass-eyed puppet is constructing a look-alike companion, while the sands drain away in hour glass and violin music plays in a minor key.
