'I Have Your Heart' is a short stopmotion animated film by Molly Crabapple, Kim Boekbinder, and Jim Batt.
The artwork is hand drawn by Molly Crabapple, the New York sensation and international superstar of Dr. Sketchy's fame.
The story and soundtrack are provided by Kim Boekbinder's popular song, "The Organ Donor's March," a rollicking, accordion based, sing-a-long about love, loss, and life after death.
The film itself will be paper puppet stopmotion animated by Jim Batt, a Melbourne based filmmaker whose work has screened at international film festivals and to sold out crowds for live cinema events.
Molly’s drawings will be turned into paper puppets that move within their own wonderful world.
Crabapple, Boekbinder, & Batt came together through the magic of the internet in early 2010 and have spent the last year scheming, planning, drawing, cutting, coloring, testing, and getting ready for this moment: PRODUCTION.
