Do you ever wonder what happened to the baby in stripey pajamas who stared in Labyrinth? Not the character but the actor. He grew up to become Toby Froud of striped pyjamas and he makes puppets and animates them Labyrinth style.
As it happens his father is Brian Froud who was the conceptual artist for Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal. The name “stripey pyjamas” might come from Labyrinth but Toby’s ability with animation isn’t all due to the movie making messing with his head as a baby; it’s a family legacy.
This is a short trailer for Lessons Learned. The full length animation will be about 15 minutes long and is made possible because of a $50,000+ Kickstarter which funded last year.
The “spider Granny” you see towards the end of the clip was made possible due to a stretch goal being met.
