Director's Comments

This film took me 5 months to make, which is by far the longest I have ever worked on a film.

Hope you guys like it.


Staff Review

A man goes to a diner and orders frog legs, and from then on humor ensues.  The man may be unaware of the origin of his dish, but Just Kidden sure isn’t!  This clever little short, which boasts very well-excecuted animation and excellent cinematography, is sure to hold your interest throughout.  The unusual props, quirky sounds, and excellent voice acting also add to the quality of this must-see animation.
