Bride of Poop

A rare out-take/prop malfunction.
Ben's latest is here. Even if you think you don't want to see a claymation movie about an interpoop romance, you really do. The falling-in-love montage alone is worth its weight in. . .  well, you know.

And in case you missed the earlier films:
Poop gets his wings in this one.
And the origin story is here.

Happy weekend, my darlings.

p.s. It bears repeating that Unbored is a wonderful book, and the place where the kids really got a foot in the door to the mechanics of animation. Just one of many, many things that book inspired them to try and do, including the hacking of Candyland into an actual strategy game that doesn't make you want to saw your own wrists apart with the Plumpy card.

  2. Amazing. The knee in the beach scene is my favorite!! So impressive, and needs to go on our "must learn to do" list!

  3. I love that all of the poops' friends and relations are Lego guys. Hilarious.

    Typical Newman fashion - HER house has the blue lamp and SHE calls him. Fantastic!

    Nice disco ball and consulting work. I'm curious - how long does it take to create such a masterpiece? Set designs, filming, editing, dubbing in sound and musical accompaniment?

    1. Dale, I would say that this one took about a week altogether of not-full-time work, but *a lot* of work. The set designs are time-consuming, as is the animation itself. He seems to do the editing and sound in about a day. You're sweet to ask. xo

  6. Ah, the long-awaited concluding chapter of the Turd Trilogy. Sure to be a classic.

  7. This was my first introduction to Poop (and Mrs. Poop). You must be soooo proud of Ben. Very creative. The disco ball was a great touch. And their voices are perfect. I'll check out the first two. Great job, Ben!!

    That is so great! My daughter asked, "how can poop wear a wedding dress?" My son said, "that's not poop, that's bride of poop." ha ha!

  11. I want the soundtrack. Is Ben still working on the ukulele? Wasn't that Mr. Poop's original groove?
    Encore! Encore, Ben!!! Keep on keepin' on.

  16. I know this may be because I am a park ranger but the poops have such a great moose poopy quality I can't help wondering what animal the poops are from? Humans? Ungulates? Future Episodes?!? I smell a spinoff!

  17. As I was watching Ben's (brilliant) movie, I was thinking, "would this be as funny if I didn't know Ben." And yes, yes it would.
