ABOUT

Fish Heads Fugue and Other Tales for Twilight is the 2005 RISD thesis film Directed, Designed, Animated and Produced by Lauren Indovina and Lindsey Mayer-Beug.  

The film was created in a 6 month span. At the time of its release, Lauren and Lindsey described the narrative as being "Through the device of a magic puppet theater, a small seer orchestrates a child's journey deep into a multilayered world of the imagination."

Adds one film critic; "To add something to this bare description is very hard. The short has a fascinating visual style that hooked my eyes to the screen during the 6 minutes the movie runs. I'm not even sure which techniques have been used in the making of it. " Sound was designed by Sarah Orenstein . 

The film went on to win numerous awards and screened in animation festivals across the world.
