Queenie: A Handmade Paper Animation About a Lovesick Professor and His Strange Academic Project

From direc­tor Paul Nea­son comes Quee­nie, an ani­mat­ed short film hand­made with paper and card­board. This tragi­com­ic short fol­lows Dan­ny, a uni­ver­si­ty Geog­ra­phy tutor/professor, as he and his stu­dents embark on a cut­ting-edge aca­d­e­m­ic project, which has noth­ing to do with his recent divorce from his wife.

Cre­at­ed by Nation­al Park Stu­dios in New Zealand, Quee­nie pre­miered at SXSW 2014, and, after gath­er­ing a few awards, it’s now mak­ing its debut online. It will be housed in the Ani­ma­tion sec­tion of our col­lec­tion, 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Clas­sics, Indies, Noir, West­erns, Doc­u­men­taries & More.
