Birdlime is the name for a sticky substance, usually made from holly bark or mistletoe, which is spread on branches to trap wild birds intended for export or trade. The film observes one bird who barely manages to escape this industry, yet remains trapped in a cage and surrounded by unfamiliar sounds and un-birdlike creatures.
Evan DeRushie is a stop-motion puppet mover from Toronto ON, Canada. He has worked as an animator on lots of TV series, commercials and music videos you’ve never seen, as well as a feature film you might’ve seen, The Little Prince (2015). In his spare time, Evan helps to run the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS), an artist-run production centre for independent animation artists. Birdlime is his second short film.
