Watch: Freaky 'Deep-Fried Fingers' Award-Winning Animated Short
"Would you like to hear today's specials?" Who's ready for some finger-lickin'-good food tonight?! This super dark comedy animated short is called Deep-Fried Fingers and it's made by a 24-year-old filmmaker from Wales named Daniel Greenway. I don't want to scare away anyone by saying this is a vegan PSA, but it's definitely the kind of film that will make you rethink what you eat. And that's a good thing! As much as they try to hide it, it is the truth. Don't worry, just accept it, be disgusted. This film works best as a thought-piece not necessarily because of the technical aspects. The animation is a bit simplistic, but it's still a biting (heh) short. Featuring the voices of Ruth Pownall, Dee Harris, Daisy Hobbs, & JP Wright. Dinner is served.
Thanks to Daniel for the tip on his own short film. The brief description from IMDb: "Deep-Fried Fingers reverses the meat eating roles between humans and animals." Deep-Fried Fingers is written and directed by filmmaker Daniel Greenway (aka Danny) from Wales. You can follow him on Instagram @dannygreenway or visit his YouTube channel to see more of his work.
