Watch the first trailer for the gorgeous hand-made puppet movie from Kevin McTurk (the FX artist who worked on just about every film we've ever loved, from Tank Girl on down) and produced by Jim Henson's daughter, Heather. Titled The Narrative of Victor Karloch, the handmade short takes its puppet to the ocean floor, where the Wendigo Demons live. It's truly beautiful — but we bet you'll flinch.
The Narrative of Victor Karloch is a non-profit traveling stage show presented from an elegantly decayed Victorian triptych puppet theater. This show, which will benefit the charity group The Art of Elysium, uses 30 inch tall rod puppets, traditional shadow puppets, rear projected elements and vaudeville trickery to present the adventures of Victor Karloch, an alchemist, scholar, and ghost hunter, as he battles the supernatural forces of the Unknown.
