Israeli director Adam Bizanski’s live action puppet short Paul, tells the story of an alienated character searching for his stolen fish through the underbelly of Tel Aviv. Adam joins us for our first interview of 2013 to discuss how he and Paul went from lip-sync performances in his room, to a string of well regarded music videos and a 27 minute neo-noir short funded by Newcastle Brown Ale.
Still in the aftermath of a tough break up, Paul’s life is slowly deteriorating. A mindless burglary of his rented apartment forces him to push through the underworld of Tel Aviv to investigate.
Having a puppet walk around in the real world & trying to maintain that ‘realness’ is a challenge.
