22 Bones, Episodes 1-2

This web series follows the exploits of Yorick, the engaging and inventive skull from Hamlet, and his unbelievably oddball crew of benevolent pirates as they navigate their way through some rather interesting situations. Off-kilter and quirky, the micro-short (1-4 minute) animated episodes are chock-full of geeky anachronistic fun!
Offered here are episodes 1 and 2.
The full series (which totals 22 weekly episodes) may be found on Vimeo here: https://vimeo.com/channels/22bones or on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClGdq3zcX2rfZlYMTtf-eIA

Director Biography - Deb Ethier

I have at various times in my life been an artist, musician, writer, educator, history and vintage film buff, puppet maker and children's theatre director, finally tying them all together with stop-motion and mixed-media animation. "Seat of the Pants Film Lab" is basically a one-person, no-budget endeavour in which I wear all of the hats.
