Lessons Learned

You might remember Toby as the "Babe with the Power" from Jim Henson's 1986 film LABYRINTH.

Toby is the son of Brian Froud—designer behind both LABYRINTH and THE DARK CRYSTAL.

In the Fall of 2013, Adam and Toby met for drinks at the McMenamin's Kennedy School in NE Portland to discuss a short puppet film Toby was producing with Heather Henson—daughter of the late Jim Henson.

Stripey Pajama Productions

After several preproduction meetings, and two weeks of principle photography in a Portland warehouse, Adam was entrusted with the task of digitally compositing and grading the films ~160 shots.
