Australian animator Jilli Rose has just started production on an animated short about Lord Howe Island stick insects. It’s called Sticky and here is its beautiful trailer.

Says Rose:

“The film is partly a celebration of the cape-worthy team at the Melbourne zoo who, behind a secret door in the butterfly house, in modest facilities, have quietly, diligently and quite literally saved a species from extinction. It’s partly a love song to evolution, uniqueness, life and the little creatures underfoot. And it’s partly a retelling of the astonishing story of the insects themselves.”

It looks incredible to me. More info on her Facebook page.
