MAP Spotlight: Catya Plate's "Hanging By a Thread"

By David Schonauer   Wednesday May 8, 2013

Filmmaker (and MAP reader) Catya Plate’s first animated stop-motion short, The Reading,received the best animated short award from the Seattle True Independent Film Festival in 2012. Now she is completing her second short, Hanging By a Thread, which, like the first, features characters she calls the “Clothespin Freaks.” This time they are cast in a story that, as Plate says, “takes place in a distant post-apocalyptic future in which the human race has fallen to pieces, but where a new breed may put it all back together.” Brilliant.
