When last we saw Toby Froud, he was an infant sporting stripey pajamas and getting abducted by David Bowie in Labyrinth, but now we’ve gotten word that Froud is following in his father’s footsteps…
He has a new short film, Lessons Learned, on the way, and today we’re happy to show you its trailer.
Actually, to say the last time we saw Froud was in Labyrinth is not true. His special effects work has appeared in such films as ParaNorman and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. But now, reminiscent of his father, Brian Froud (the elder Froud was, among other things, the conceptual designer for Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal), Toby has created a short film entitled Lessons Learned that was successfully Kickstarted last year and is heavily influenced by his father’s iconic characters.
Teaming with another mega-talented offspring, Heather Henson, and her puppet company Ibex Puppetry to create the creatures, Froud wrote and directed the 15-minute Lessons Learned, which is currently hitting the indie circuit and on the road with Henson’s Hand Puppet Dreams tour.
