Emoticon – MTV Bumper
A short film made for Hunter/Gatherer to be aired on MTV’s Sunday Stew as a bumper. Emoticon plays on the canned expressions used in Instant Messaging, and tries to imagine it in human form, spinning heads and all. The puppet was sculpted by me with my likeness. The scenic backdrop was a color print of a field of Grass. I shot it with a DV camera using iStopmotion, and edited it using Final Cut.
