Boing Boing pal Joe Sabia, who works with me to create our in-flight Boing Boing Virgin America TV channel, shares his latest project. This delightful short film was 7 months in the making, all done with hand-made miniatures. It's a promotional video for Bamboo Sushi, a restaurant in Portland.
Lori Nix/Kathleen Gerber were the brilliant miniature model makers. Vincent Peone directed. Michael T scored. Matt McCorkle did Sound FX.
