These mesmerizingly odd sculptures of the human psyche are the work of director Tobias Stretch for his haunting new animation 'Unity'.
For the the short stop-motion film, Stretch used 10,000 photographs of unusual yet emotional tree-like puppets to compose a spellbinding piece about the human psyche and all the things it goes through -- love, death and resurrection.
The puppets in the film are articulated beautifully and boast bodies and soulfully human eyes. The artsy and avant-garde film is full of visual delights -- the first scene is shot in a house that looks like a Vincent van Gogh painting -- and revolves around lovers who represent the four seasons with feelings and notions of death and life. However, the most impressive thing about 'Unity' is definitely the humane tree sculptures.
