Finnish Animators Work Overtime on Trilogy

Finnish animators Mark Ståhle and Tatu Pohjavirta have completed the 2nd part of their Death Trilogy, a series of Flash-animated shorts. This installment is titled Jatkoaika (Overtime), and it centers on a young ice skater’s adventures in the afterlife.

At first, I was a bit put-off by the puppet-style of the production. It is most certainly “limited” animation, but the design is so interesting, and the manner in which the puppets move really caught my eye. Of course, there is the highly unusual and even touching storyline, that eventually delves into the realm of black comedy.

The film has also faired well at Newgrounds.com.

    Wonderful. Very thoughtful and inventive. I dig the puppet style animation.
