Summer is here and with it comes sun, sea and Sandy - a new short by filmmaker Joseph Mann.


Playful, bright and ever-so-slightly NSFW, Sandy's seaside world was brought to life entirely through the art of stop frame animation. It took 8 months of work, a lot of sand, and hours of molding anatomically correct private parts to create the film and its handmade set, complete with a bubble wrap sea and miniature rubber dinghy.
