WFAC 2012: Heart String Marionette
HEART STRING MARIONETTE is the second film by the utterly independent director (or self-styled Uberector) M Dot Strange. Uninterested in what is common, M Dot Strange reaches further towards the fringe than his first film WE ARE THE STRANGE (WFAC 2008 Selection), exploring many angles of philosophical and artistic influences in a sense, what created all of the selves that together form what he is today. The film is the cinematic equivalent of hardcore or punk music - independent, raucous on the outside, thoughtful on the inside. Made in collaboration with musician and friend Endika, who composed and played the completely original soundtrack, the film was completely self-financed, with voice talent lent by several indie musicians including JP Anderson and Jimmy Urine (Mindless Self Indulgence). Five years in the making, HEART STRING MARIONETTE is a shining example of personal storytelling.
About M Dot Strange
With a love for 8-bit videogames and stop-motion animation, the San Jose-based M dot has been honing his bizarre brand of stories since the 90s. An electronic musician, rapper and animator, M dot made the Internet his film school, studio, distributor and publicity engine, featured multiple times on the front page of YouTube. M dot is determined to push the boundaries of what one single person can do in cinematic animation, and is already hard at work on his next film.
