For the opening titles of the F5 Festival, themed this year around happiness, we created a children's variety show of sorts, designed to surprise and delight our creative colleagues in attendance -- and how better than with hand-sewn puppets, painted geometry, and full body spandex. Be sure to check out the Puppet Outtakes (rated R for explicit language and sexual situations). Conceived, written, directed, designed, shot and produced in house at Buck.
