"Look for the ridiculous in everything..."
Matt Orefice cut his teeth and other bits working for James L. Brooks, Jon Favreau, Miguel Arteta, and other good folks. "Joy of Wolf" is his fourth feature as director, and is the first of an unrelated fantasy trilogy using in part or whole, whole or parts of puppets. "Joy of Wolf", like the next installments, "Phylum Sipuncula" (in post-production) and "Bad Men from a Melting Moon" (currently filming) takes place in a dream-like world of idiosyncrasies, internalization, and impossible tragedies.
