A short film created by Clément Picon, Manu Javelle and Beakus director Amael Isnard when graduating from France's prestigious school Supinfocom.

'Three creatures go in search of food in the woods but find that there ain't no such thing as a free lunch'.
Table Manners is director Rebecca Manley's first foray into the word of live action puppets. She always wanted to make something as an homage to the shows and films that inspired her as a child (from The Muppets to Labyrinth). The low budget form of Channel 4's late night arts strand Random Acts proved to be the perfect platform for experimentation.
