Cory Taylor and Jeremiah Warren are working on an animated short film called 'The Filthy Spoon'. It'll be produced almost completely in Blender and while they're working on it they're maintaining a production journal. It's interesting stuff to follow.
Doug is an antique silver spoon who belongs in a tableware collection. One day Doug strays away and is lost and forgotten. He eventually resurfaces and longs to join his friends in the collection again...but he has collected much dirt and grime over the years of being away and he must cleans himself before re-entering the group. To do this Doug must reach a canister of silver polish....which is frightfully high up on a fridge.
Doug is bound and determined to reach the silver polish and join his old comrades...but many challenges await him if he is going to succeed...if he is able to overcome those challenges, that is. Will Doug succeed, or will he fail? You will have to wait until the fall of 2008 to find out!
