Sandy Short Film of Summer

Film director Joseph Mann has produced “Summer”, a stop frame animated short film featuring a boy, a beach, and a vivid imagination. Blinkink gives us the background… “Playful, bright and ever-so-slightly NSFW, Sandy’s seaside world was brought to life entirely through the art of stop frame animation. It took 8 months of work, a lot of sand, and hours of molding anatomically correct private parts to create the film and its handmade set, complete with a bubble wrap sea and miniature rubber dinghy.”

Sandy was shot at Clapham Road Studios by director/producer Joseph Mann via Blinkink with executive producers Bart Yates and James Bretton, director of photography Max Halstead, camera assistants Matthew Day and Toby Goodyear.
