Jammed – A Stop Motion Comedy for Adults (Language)
Adult language and themes in this stop motion comedy for adults.
This 11 minute animation is based on the award-winning script by Vince Gatton. A malfunctioning piece of office equipment brings out the worst in a diverse group of co-workers. A dark comedy about perspective. I so admire Vince’s writing here. Darkly poetic in the vein of David Mamet.
“Jammed is based on a fantastic script called “Jam” by Vince Gatton. It is really funny but also a very dark exploration of corporate culture and the violence in our culture. I had never produced anything with my dolls that turned that dark. I was a bit nervous about it and until I was finished, I wasn’t sure it would work. The design emerged from separate discoveries – I was pleased to find the opening piece of artwork, and then to have it hover over the action throughout the piece. My “casting” involved finding some new dolls and repurposing older ones that seemed to fit the characters.” Read more about the making of “Jammed” in this wonderful article by Indie Activity
