Posted in animation, film, stop motion with tags , , , on July 1, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

The legendary Jan Svankmajer is crowdfunding what is to be his last feature length film (hopefully not…a girl can dream).

Synopsis:
A local pub in a small town. It’s Monday and the bar is closed, chairs are turned up on the tables. The pub is empty except for six amateur actors sitting in a corner. They’ve met to rehearse “The Insect Play” by the Čapek brothers. On a raised platform across the room we see a stage, set for Act II of the play. As the rehearsal progresses, the characters of the play are born and die with no regard to time. The actors slowly become one with them and some of them experience frightening transformations…

The campaign has already reached its stretch goals, which makes me so happy. See much more here.
