Stop motion-animated short Plot-oon tells the violent story of an epic battle. Like Pixar's Toy Story movies, it's a comedy of scale, as bottle caps become mines and cocktail umbrellas become parachutes. The short was a collaboration between multiple creative forces: Chris Butcher, Irresistible Films, 3angrymen, and Bee Everywhere, for Channel 4.
3angrymen shares some behind-the-scenes moments on their blog. In the video below, Butcher notes, "I've never worked with army men, or on mud, and I wouldn't suggest either."
