Chuck Duke and Jesse Brodkey finished a 16mm film called Rung. It has a haunting style and the story is completely visual.
Without giving it away, this a film I wanted to share that Don Carlson found and sent me on Facebook. Chuck Duke has an extensive list of films he has worked on. Many of which I grew up watching and got inspired by. So finally seeing his puppets come to life was a real treat. I also briefly met Chuck in Portland (Will Vinton Studios) way back in 1995 or so, and he had the busiest and most puppet-crammed desks in the whole place. If you don't count Gary Bialkes'.
There aren't many films that have such high production values on low budgets as this. You can watch the full film directly on Chucks Vimeo page here. You can also read the official Rung blog and find many behind the scenes images and some videos too over here.
