eclipse, directed by jerrold chong
Eclipse is a short stop-motion film about a son’s visit to his long-estranged father, on the day of an impending solar eclipse. An event of cosmic significant coincides with an emotional revelation for father and son.
I worked closely with the director (who also wrote the piece, and built and animated the puppets) to develop the aesthetic for this film’s world, with its different textures of paper and rich colors. I also constructed the log cabin and lake sets, and led the build of the train.
