Video: The Moon’s Milk

Seven and a half years in the making, The Moon’s Milk is an entirely handmade stop motion animated short about a time when the moon was close enough to be reached by ladder. Narrated by Tom Waits and directed by Ri Crawford, the film chronicles the last expedition of Captain Millipede and his crew to harvest the milk seeping from the moon’s craters. The action takes place between the gravities of two heavenly bodies, which further complicates the attraction between the characters. Longing, missed signals, and mishaps lead to the enchantment of the heavens with music.

Running time: 13 minutes

    Is the voice narration in this video, “The Moon’s Milk,” performed by Jack Nicholson?
