The Tree Man - Marionette Film Out Now
Last year I made 2 marionettes for an Independant short film by Navin Dev.
Set between Chapters 15 and 16 of Carlo’s Collodi’s classic novel 'The Adventures of Pinocchio', 'The Tree Man' depicts Pinocchio’s seemingly final minutes as he hangs from a tree. As he slowly dies, the wooden marionette spiritually journeys into an inferno of fear, guilt and hope through his encounters with key symbolic characters such as the Maiden with Azure Hair and the ghost of the Talking Cricket. As he falls deeper into darkness he learns the crucial dangers and virtues of the mortality he seeks.
I also puppeteered on the film along with Sara Kirkpatrck and Raven Kaliana.
