One of the most profitable short films ever made, this set the style and started the career of Bill Plympton. As a second-rate crooner sings about the beauties of his lover’s face, his own face metamorphosizes into the most surreal shapes and contortions possible.
In his 1987 Academy Award®-nominated short, the “King of Indie Animation” Bill Plympton makes a charmingly playful and wonderfully effortless study of facial distortions. Your Face traces a tenor’s many facial distortions as he sings a ballad to his lover—the simplest ideas are often the best.
