A Short Film Directed and Animated by Shaun Clark

“a darkly funny animation” – Sight & Sound Gaia Meucci

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.
