Stop-Motion Love Story: The Maker

The Maker is an artful sci-fi love story with a timeless theme. Time. Less. (Watch, you’ll see what I mean.)

Film-makers Christopher and Christine Kezelos, whose first stop-motion piece Zero scooped up awards at film festivals around the world, give us an awkwardly endearing creature who works to construct something of great importance to him. You’ll find yourself motivated to cherish each moment. You also may wonder if this creature and his beloved make and remake each other in some endless dance of creation. That’s a lot to fit in a few minutes.
