Someone Here Is Missing is based on a song by The Pineapple Thief. The film is set inside an old toy shop and follows Mr Punch on his quest to find his true love.
The film was commissioned to promote the title track of the band’s new album of the same name in 2010.
This was my second full length venture into 3D animation. The software I used was Cinema 4D and I designed and modelled all the scenes from scratch. It was produced in my free time over the course of 5 months.
