Húsláb is a stop-motion animated film created and written by David Clark and directed by Dan Richards. Narrated by David Morrissey it tells a tale of being just that little bit different. Of struggling to fit in somewhere new. It’s based in 60s Margate and will be approximately ten minutes in length.

The crew behind Húsláb

To bring the story of Húsláb to life we’ve pulled together a crack team of accomplished and talented individuals from the world of Stop Motion, TV and Film. Between them, they’ve worked on some of the world’s best known productions including Wallace and Gromit, Fantastic Mr Fox and The Walking Dead.

Húsláb will be produced at A+C Studios in the UK.

Teaser film

Meet Húsláb, Margate’s favourite migrant. We’ve lived with his legend for years so thought it was about time the rest of the world knew him too.

Campaign film

Meet Dan, Margate’s 2nd favourite migrant. He can tell you why backing Húsláb on Kickstarter is exactly what you should be doing.


Take a look at where we started with a sneaky peak at our studio animatic (animated storyboard) for Húsláb.



We have turned to Kickstarter to make this short film possible and raise the funds needed to start production. Being a self contained studio means that the funding we get will mainly be used on materials and model makers. We wont be spending it on kit or crew or post as we already have those things in abundance we just need you guys to fill in the blanks where necessary.

Now we know that you can’t all donate money to Húsláb but we’d love you to do your bit and share it with as many people as possible. No matter where you are in the world we’d love you to be part of this amazing and unique project.
