Short Film Of The Day: The Eagleman Stag

A film by: Mikey Please

Synopsis:
It’s simultaneously easy to figure out and utterly simple to deny you’ve got the right answer because it just seems to painstaking. Make no mistake. This is highly complicated, insanely detailed stop-motion animation.

It’s also more than a miracle of sweat and mechanics. It’s a thrilling, epic tale about a man’s full life and the important discovery that defines (and redefines) it. Sweet, stirring and expertly crafted, this is the kind of film that deserves standing ovations and a shelf full of honestly-earned awards.
