A search for higher meaning, dissatisfaction with the status quo and a sense that you’re the first person to feel this way.
A semi-satirical coming of age story told by handmade wooden puppets.

‘DIS \ CONNECT’ is Doug Hindson’s graduation film from the Illustration & Animation course at Kingston University, London.
All models and sets were made from wood & card by hand, hundreds of individual pieces were designed, cut, sanded, glued and painted.
Rather than stop-motion, the film was shot live-action with strings and rods controlling the puppets and everything was captured in-camera.
The production process took around 12 weeks from conception to completion.
