A shortfilm made in response to a call for submissions from TAIS (Toronto Animation and Image Society). The theme for this year’s Anijam was “Technical Difficulties”.
This is the melancholic tale of an old English gentle-owl, Mr. Beaksworth, who is sitting down to tea, in his cosy country cottage. The table is set and the tea is ready, but there is a technical difficulty: He realizes that this once cherished ritual has lost its meaning without the company of his beloved wife, Mrs. Beaksworth. He is a heartbroken, and utterly unable to summon interest in his tea.
