Puppet – A Short Animated Film by Patrick Smith

Puppet, an animated film created by Patrick Smith, has the right blend of humor and intellectual depth.

The story of the film tells of a young man who creates an innocuous-looking hand puppet, but his creation starts to hurt him in increasingly painful and inventive ways.

Has the hand puppet taken a life of its own, or are the actions of the puppet ultimately the manifestations of the creator’s inner demons?

The film’s soundtrack, composed and conducted by Charles Fernandez, complements the animation beautifully.

Watch the film after the break.
