The Eagleman Stag (2010)

Picture 8This strangely engaging short is a reflection on life, time, meaning, symbolism, science, relationships and cut-out pieces of foam.  Mikey Please’s stop-action The Eagleman Stag is a step or two beyond the standard animation film that relies on snappy visuals and moves into a more existential wasteland (or a richness), and draws unexpected, yet obvious connections.

This may not be the best way to wake up in the morning, or maybe it is.  Or maybe not.
