Tiny Inventions

Tiny Inventions is the Brooklyn-based directing team of Max Porter and Ru Kuwahata, and I’m in love with their latest project: a 10-minute animated dark comedy called Something Left, Something Taken about a vacationing couple’s encounter with a man they believe to be a serial killer. The film also features their own voices!

While the film is great, I really appreciated the highly detailed posts about their process. From character design (they purposely made “uglier” characters!), to how they filmed the decomposition stage (watch the whole show to find out more!), they shared their experience with fans and students generously. Max and Ru combine handcrafted art, photography, and digital techniques into their animations; and adds their own humor into the mix. The result? Beautiful, one-of-a-kind handmade films that I wouldn’t mind watching over and over again.
