Murder Doll House

DEADLY GARDENS

come on in out of the cold, Dear

In 1988, 2 police officers arrive at 1418 F Street in search of a man reported missing by a local Social Worker. Investigation on the home begins to unearth 3 decades of secrets kept hidden just underneath the surface.
Deadly Garden is the final entry in the True Macabre trilogy, and is by far the most ambitious. Both chilling, darkly funny and even heart breaking this story proves that even in the most non-assuming American neighborhood can harbor the darkest threats.
Written and Animated by Teppei Ando with music by Evan Kertman, orginal songs by Postcoitus

Happy Carrot Health Food Store

Stoked on how it came out. It’s an epic song, glad we got to do it. I had my doubts that we could pull it off, but I think we did.
I described it to some friends as a Sesame Street style video with narrative device switch ups.
The review on The Bay Bridged said basically the same thing. Haha. I could totally see Sonny having his own children’s show style thing

LA bound

10/05/2014

whew! sometimes life gives you a crossroad out of nowhere and you just have to take a path. Well without getting into a long story, I’m making the voyage to Los Angeles by Halloween. I’m excited. I’m going to miss Oakland and all the inspiration it’s given me in the years but it’s time to try making art in a different environment.
