Ever Hear a Postman Whistle by Bexie Bush

Badge finalist Finalist for The Film Skillet Winter 2012/2013 Animation Contest in Animation - Stop Motion

‘Ever hear a Postman Whistle’ was created for the BBC's Open University Creative Climate
Short Film competition. Two old armchairs discuss changing lifestyles and expectations.
Their conversation covers shopping, waste, windmills, postmen and what really matters in
life and we find they introduce an ideal way to explore issues around’ consumerism’ with
their depth of humour, wisdom and experience. The film gently introduces the idea that we
were less wasteful in the past. All audio for this film is a recorded natural conversation, the
microphone wasn’t hidden but it was unobtrusive.

Funny and powerful message.

I really like this... not only the fact that the lady chair (!) reminds me of my Auntie Flo, but the message rings so true. I do remember when all the wrapping was just brown or white paper... the food was correspondingly fresher, too. Just so well done.
