Sinister, comic, surreal, or perhaps a mixture of all three? An assortment of animated sequences exploring stop-motion makes up this early film by talented and humorous animator Paul Berry (1961-2001). After studying at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, Berry joined the Cosgrove Hall animation studio in Manchester. In 1991 he was Oscar nominated for his short horror film 'The Sandman'.
