Synopsis: 

Lenid is worried about his friend The Ambassador, a human head in a mechanical box. He’s been smoking a lot lately and his masters will not be pleased. Together the pair must confront General Sleg, one of the most original and disgusting monsters ever created for film, and a bloody showdown of claymation splatter ensues.

Shot on an ultra-low budget with sets built from vacuum cleaners this 12- minute sci-fi epic makes use of claymation, pixilation, 2D and 3D computer animation. It is the third short film of New Zealand director Tom Reilly and one of the most original animations you'll ever see.
