Trompe L’oeil by Tyson James Dale (2010)

February 20, 2011

This very smooth puppet animation tells the story without words. This is the final cut of Tyson James Dale’s thesis film. Tyson James Dale is from San Francisco, Ca, USA.

A business inspector is sent to inspect an old theatre. When he arrives on location, there’s no theatre, only an empty lot with a charismatic mime who is looking to perform for him. The mime now has to perform various theatre positions, in order to convince the inspector that his “theatre” is up to code, and indeed real. It has a surprise ending.
