Lady and the Tooth

Hidden away in a village where the most precious commodity is teeth, a toothless man lives in fear of being sacrificed by the villagers. Lonely and in search of acceptance he resorts to kidnapping as a desperate way to find love and freedom.

“Lady and the Tooth” is a short animation entirely create by a series of studies made on a ongoing sketchbook collecting life drawings of passerby . The film was then animated in After Effects.

The full production was self funded and it was made possible thanks to the generosity of the crew.

Director Biography - Shaun Clark

Shaun Clark graduated from The National Film and Television School England in 2005 with the short film called “Lightman”. A manic tale about a man who is scared of the dark and tries at all costs to recreate the sun in his loft to make the dark vanish from his life forever. The film was screened at over forty film festivals and went on to win numerous awards. In 2005 Shaun was recognised by Aardman animations in an exhibition of work from the uk’s most recent fresh talent. Shaun went onto produce a series of short films between 2006 and 2011 which used experimental storytelling and abstract techniques. In 2010 his film Home?, Won the best experimental audience prize at the London International Animation Festival. Lady and the Tooth sees Shaun return to narrative based themes exploring a grotesque village full of teeth worshippers.

Shaun resides in London, England and is a Director at Mew Lab
