I'm a Monster

Although this is a taster for a longer production, this short animation by Headless Productions stands up very well on its own. It is the story of a suburban family - much like any other family with one exception.  Dad is a monster - a real monster.

As a taster this really promises a lot - and I for one would like to see a lot more very soon!  In terms of the look and mood of the film and the characters I was reminded a little of some of the Disney features of the fifties and sixties, such as The Aristocats.  Yet the dialogue is very punchy and contemporary and both come together in a remarkably good fit.

So, ladies and gentlemen of Headless Productions - can we have some more please?
