A cautious father refuses to ever let his son leave the house to play with other kids. However, his son discovers a nifty trick. 2012 City Winners and National Finalists, Picton Pictures return to the comp after having a break last year. "An Inconvenient Hoof" was a shadow-puppet film and so it was interesting to see how they'd approach 2014. Well, the scissors and glue and cardboard are out again, but this time they're out of the shadows. Simple, but effective and working cardboard cut-outs were manipulated during this clever little story which was well-received by the audience. The voice-over also works well and the film is nicely paced. Son & Moon, is a sweet little film that has a definite feel good factor to it. It lacks the dark humour of it's predecessor but it still a quality effort.

A really pleasant to watch short. A good range of emotions resulting from good choreography puppetry. Would have been nice to have seen the film-makers go for a wider scope with more scenery and locations.

After watching this, you can't help but feel good. The animation style for me was really sweet, and the voice acting was excellent. Hope to see this film in the city finals!

Another superb Picton Pictures offering. Great paper cut-outs and animation. Great story, great pacing/editing/etc. Fantastic audio as usual. I loved when Morgan got burned the hell up. Great short.
