Genre: Horror, Comedy
Length: 00:46
Released: October 24th, 2009

Director's Comments

Made for AniExer-size II - Halloween Edition.
It's a real rush job with the animation and editing done over 3 days (about 12 hours).
I tried a few new things (some worked, some did not) including Helium Frog for the frame capture.
Hope you get a chuckle out of it, ooops, I mean get really frightened.

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
Simple? Yes. Excellently executed? You bet your life. Some nice use of interchanging heads and a gorgeous circular pan are the highlights of this cute short. Sure, it's not flawless (for example, facial hair vanishes and reappears as the heads change), but there are much worse things you could do with the next minute of your life than give this one a view. Definitely recommended.
