Short Film: Junk Head 1

Video | 10 Jan 2014

Created by self-taught filmmaker and marionette-maker Takahide Hori (also known as YAMIKEN) over the course of four years, Junk Head 1 is an experimental horror film made using stop motion animation in which a man travels into a bizarre subterranean realm, encountering gruesome and incredibly strange creatures.

This labour of love, crafted painstakingly in the spare time Hori had after his full-time white collar job, is a rich and singular creation – have a look at production shots and models on Hori's site, and if you enjoy the film, consider contributing towards Junk Head 2, currently seeking funding on IndieGoGo.
