a short film by David Lisbe
After many millennia of being tortured in Hell, Raymond K. Hessle has finally earned a chance to appeal his sentence of Eternal Damnation. Upon arriving at the "appeals" gate of Heaven he is greeted by the angel who will preside over his case. As Raymond waits at the edge of paradise, he will finally have a chance to prove just how worthy he is.
A clay man encounters a sweet blue clay dog, only to lose track of him during a protracted battle with a huge metal creature. A surreal landscape of cans, bottles, scrap metal, oil, and fissures threaten the protagonist. How will he survive, and where's the dog? This was shot with a 3 frame video assist frame grabber. You had 3 concurrent frames at any one time, 2 stored and one live. A breakthru in stop-mo, it allowed for more flourish and control.
