Independent Film “Fish Head”
An Independent Short Film From
Joe Murray Studio and Garden Box
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 still captures the maniacal humor of Rocko and Lazlo, while experimenting 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.
Fish Head is the first of, what will hopefully be, a series of “Earth Friendly” animated films, produced by Garden Box Animation Studios.
