"Harker" (of Dracula fame)

Most of you know that I'm active in Deviant Art. If you haven't visited the site, I highly recommend it; you will find a wealth of fascinating art in every imaginable form. One of my very favorite works is a short puppet animation film by Scotty Shoemaker, Jason Murphy and Tony Giordano made in 2005. Based on German expressionism, it very successfully mimics the old silent films, albeit with 12 inch rod puppets. This is a stunning collaboration approximately 16 minutes in length which also manages to convey a fun and different take on the classic "Dracula" story. Do take the time to watch--you won't be sorry!

Look here to go see the video.
