The latest in the long line of Zune Arts films is a zombie puppet number from Three Legged Legs, set to Chromeo’s “Fancy Footwork.” It’s a twisted take on the Zune Arts theme of sharing, and marks Three Legged Legs foray into live-action puppetry directing.
Andrew Hem and Adam Parker Smith did a great job creating zombified versions of their distinctively designed characters. It seems like they, along with everyone else on the project, had a ton of fun smashing up childhood memories of The Muppets and MJ’s “Thriller” video. (Then again, I don’t think TLL were even alive for either of those cultural events… but I digress.)
As always, agency 72andSunny (okay, okay AND Microsoft) deserve props for keeping things fresh and giving artists the freedom to make weird, fun stuff like this.
Here’s an entertaining making-of video that we posted as a Quickie a while back. You can also get a ton more inside info and download a huge HD version of the video on the TLL site.
