Dead Things: The Bridge Between Life and Death

 

You live. And then you die. It’s as simple as that. Well…not really.

Col. B. Buster and friends travel through a fantastical forest while frenzied dark denizens moan and groan. The group soon grow tired and set-up camp beside a man-eating tree. Between yawns and snores—the tides of dream carry them to a place no mortal belongs: the bridge between life and death.

  1. Symbolism abound everywhere . . . death = scythe, dead horse, Marvin’s presence; Mr. Grumble = the soldiers’ hunger personified; owl with bat wings = environmental pollution-based mutation . . . Another great video!

  2. Brilliant: the croaking bull frogs and singing, shouting birds, the one-eyed owl and YES, yes, Marvin has made a mysterious appearance, oh yes…your mind, your imagination:..wondrously weird. Brilliant.

    1. I don’t know what scares me the most…the bullfrogs…or the one-eyed owl…Haha.

      Marvin’s scene was brief, but at least you got to see what he looked like before his face melted. Poor Marvin.

  3. Thank you for sharing my haiku. Your versatility, in the creative field, is mind blowing. The setting looks so real; a far cry from the cardboard walls in the early Dead Things episode. 😊 Did you take the crew outside to film or was the set totally recreated by you?

    1. I typically begin with a cardboard stage, and then create the world. Moss, leaves, dirt, and grass…and then I add the unnatural stuff (plastic trees, props, tombstones, carriages…).

      After I’m done with the stage, I dismantle the entire scene, and then create another one. Can you recall the model scenes in the movie Beetlejuice? It’s kind of like that, but on a much smaller scale.

      1. Yes, I remember the Beetlejuice scenes. 🙂 One day, perhaps, you can do a video of how you create your model scenes — this would be helpful for the ones just starting to shoot film. I know you feel you’re still a novice, but you’ve grown so much in just a couple of months or so. Your films keep improving each time.
