Puppetry of the Dick
On a whim, and perhaps a dime, UCLA graduate art students Lily Simonson and Lindsay Lawson, along with their friend Tristan Buckner, made this little puppet DV merging Dick Cheney's buckshot with Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire". The result, "Line of Fire," was shot over four or five days in the center bay of the UCLA graduate studios in Culver City. Look for more from the spontaneous trio, now known collectively as the Chubby Bon Vivants.
