David Firth‘s work is notoriously dark and unfriendly for advertisers. He recently found himself in a financial bind, and was considering getting a day job. He plead his case to the internet, and started a Patreon campaign that succeded almost immediately. To express his thanks, he released a short he spent an entire year developing.
“Cream” is a cure-all for everything imaginable. Do you have acne? Just rub some Cream on it. Is your TV broken? All it needs is a dab of Cream.
Content Warning: This short contains disturbing imagery.
David Firth, creator of our first Saturday Short “Crooked Rot”, receives his second appearance on our site with the eighth episode of his bizarre comedy series, Salad Fingers. (If you haven’t seen the previous seven, don’t worry. There’s no background information you’ll need in order to understand this one.) Whether you laugh so hard you puke, or curl up in the fetal position during this clip, one thing is certain, David is a master of weird.
“Saturday Short” (suggestions on a better title are welcome) is a new feature where we’ll be featuring a new (to us), full-length, weird short every Saturday. Shorts are selected by our new “shorts editor” Cameron Jorgensen.
This stop-motion animation by David Firth is just over a year old. David found a lot of the props he uses in this animation in his own backyard. Beware, most of his shorts are very creepy, and “Crooked (Orcus) Rot” is no exception. A lot of his work can be defined as dark humor while this would better fit under experimental. Musical score written by Marcus Fjellstrom.
