The tale of a small man trying to regain his place in the world with the assistance of a hand from above. This hand’s motives are unknown until the end, assisting the man until the inevitable betrayal. Originally I was going to use the style of Ray Harryhausen, Dynamation, but ran in to roadblocks due to lack of a long enough story. I switched over to Jiri Trnka’s puppeteer style. I used his animation The Hand for story and style reference by having the thought of a hand manipulate the protagonist.
