Dinosaur Love Story

16mm film, 1 minute, silent black and white, 2015

Created specifically for the 2015 Terrible Film Festival (with hand-processed 16mm film), this short was written and "puppeteered" by William Bessai-Saul. It tells the tale of a dinosaur love triangle and the violent end which follows. Yet, even after the death of the conflicting third figure, the aggressive male dinosaur continues to drive himself to physical feats. Who does he need to continuously prove his virility to?

This footage became part of a larger film called Defying Extinction.
