An Independent Short Film From
Joe Murray Studio and Newt Street Pictures
The small Irish fishing town of Fish Head is turned upside down when Fisherman Blister McFlatus discovers a Magic fish, and wishes for,what he believes to be,his deepest desire.
As a loose adaptation of “A Fisherman’s Wife” by the Brothers Grimm, Fish Head also questions the impact of our “wants” on our overall quality of life. In a way a ‘Green film’, both in the message and the production methods, Fish Head is being produced with mixed media styles. Definitely a “darker tale”, the backgrounds combine a mixture of weathered paint on barn wood, hand made papers and cloth, with recycled cardboard for character coloring.
