Retuning

“Retuning” is a short stop-motion puppet animated film.

Idea is to show forced individuality equalization (globalization) via loss of identity, personality, free thinking abilities, etc. through few artistic symbols of human to Barbie transformation. The world is represented as a factory, and its string pullers as a clowns. People are boxed and tagged if there are obedient, and if not, they are sent for "retuning".
