"Uncle Jake - An homage to Mervyn Peake." (2011)

Our latest stop-motion short film is a personal homage dedicated to writer and artist Mervyn Peake, on the occasion of his Centenary year. He's such a great inspiration for us, that we wanted to translate his drawings into animated puppets.
Verses and character are from the poem "Aunts and Uncles" (A Book of Nonsense).
Many thanks to the Mervyn Peake Estate, in the person of his late son Sebastian, for the kind concession of the original material.
The film has been realized in just 3 weeks of holidays with no budget.

Duration: 1:10 seconds
Country: Italy
Tecnique: Puppets/stop-motion
Here a couple of stills:
