PRAISE FOR THE FILM:

BLOODY GOOD HORROR: “Creepy beyond belief.  A riveting voice-over by horror veteran Barbara Steele sets the tone for this unsettling short.  You won’t be disappointed. ”

JOVANKA VUCKOVIC (The Captured Bird, Jacqueline Ess)– “Spooky and surreal.”

APRIL SNELLINGS, RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE– “Many filmmakers struggle to do in ninety minutes what Chris Walsh does in four and a half. The Shutterbug Man delivers the nasty, efficient shocks of a well-told horror tale, even as it turns its grimy lens on the very process of conjuring bogeymen from the shadows. It’s a beautifully shot, meticulously handcrafted nightmare.”

TOM HOLLAND (Child’s Play, Fright Night)–“Experimental film at its best…stop motion and puppets makes it wonderfully weird and Barbara Steele gives it tone and resonance along with a terrific sound job”

MICK GARRIS (creator of Masters of Horror and Fear Itself)–“Chris Walsh’s minimalist, monochromatic puppet animation is a canny and creepy observation of viewers (like me) with tastes that are bit on the bloodthirsty side. In four minutes, he takes the retro and makes it modern, boosted tremendously by Barbara Steele’s elegant narration and Chris Alexander’s atmospheric score, woven like an elaborately designed Persian rug.”

FANGORIA MAGAZINE: “Chilling and beautiful.”

Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes now on YouTube

Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes isn't a Canadian production, but that doesn't mean they don't enjoy Canadian animated content. When asked what Canadian animation they are most drawn to they responded by saying:

"We find inspiration in lots of animation art produced in Canada! Frédéric Back is just one of many animators that we love. His short film Crac is pure joy! It's hard to define what exactly makes it so charming - maybe it is lack of dialogues, or expressionistic drawing style with plenty of nice details, or maybe that it's fun to see the world through the eyes of a wheelchair!"
