Director Jack Fields’ short psychedelic movie takes the viewer on a trip as we follow a cupcake through a dangerous realm filled with terrifying creatures with voracious appetites. The movie’s wondrous absurdity is delightful and insightful. Using recycled Christmas decorations, toys, and other simple materials, Jack constructs puppets that are eccentric, complex, and eye-catching. The unique style in which the story is told is sure to take the viewer on an adventure that inspires the imagination.
Jack Fields earned his degree in Digital Art from Stetson University. Mixing his nine years of digital art experience with his seven years of puppetry artistry, Jack melds his artistic mastery to creates his visually stimulating characters and worlds. Jack’s uniquely crafted aesthetic and psychedelic style is cohesive and identifiable. This can be seen in his other work, such as in his award winning music video for They Might be Giants song, "Am I Awake?"
Jack currently works in Orlando, Florida at IBEX Puppetry, a puppetry production group started by Jim Henson’s daughter, Heather Henson. He also leads his own production company There’s a Thing in There that creates works for stage, video, and walk-around performances. The objective of his production company is to "emphasize non-traditional storytelling and character design and narratives that are inspired by mythology and the subconscious."
