Lamenting the demise of the audio cassette, we at M-I-E, thought it would be nice to try and find a fitting tribute to it’s faded glory. ‘Jammed’ is the story of a bold, heroic, Viewmaster robot, venturing into an unknown world to save an unknown soul. We had great fun making this short film, using a mixture of stop motion and 3D techniques. The music was composed by our talented friends, Dan and John, at Meanred.

  1. Donna,

    I didn’t think I’d get the story posted her instead of Skepchicks, specifically, since I sent it to them specifically, so when I didn’t see it there I didn’t think anyone ran with it. Anyway, I’m glad to see it here. Hopefully someone will find those rock carvings soon. They’re of a great historical value. In the meantime, anyone who finds them could get a cash reward.
