"PITTARI" Stills from upcoming short film..

"Pittari" is loosely based on Tom Robbin's depiction of Tanuki, a Japanese mythical creature known for his mischief.
I had fun with the abstract nature of the film, as well as the overall minimal design.
Like my other films, experimental audio is playing a key role; abstract foley, and even antique phonograph gospel music.
