Funny short film about a couple resigned to their Zodiac Killer fate

Something Left, Something Taken- Full Version from Tiny Inventions on Vimeo.

Max Porter, a regular reader of our SUNfiltered blog and one half of the talented married duo behind Tiny Inventions (a Brooklyn-based animation firm), wrote in to share a funny independent short film he created with his wife Ru Kuwahata. SOMETHING LEFT, SOMETHING TAKEN is about a couple on vacation in San Francisco who become convinced they are stuck with a man they believed to be the [cue scary music] Zodiac Killer!

Max and Ru utilized a diverse range of techniques from stop-motion to puppetry to digital animation, while incorporating different materials such as Jell-O and cardboard props. After you view the behind the scenes, you’ll understand why this impressive project took 2.5 years.
