Puppetboy (Dockpojken) is a little clay figure from the animated series “The Tale of Little Puppetboy” (“Sagan om den lille Dockpojken”). He is also appearing in the live action short film called simply “Puppetboy” (“Dockpojken”). That film is now being developed into a full length feature.

Synopsis For more than a decade eccentric filmmaker Johannes Nyholm has worked on films featuring a little clay figure he calls “Puppetboy”. Many hours of animation have been completed, yet very little has been made available to the public. Following the artist behind the scenes we discover a very intimate relationship between him and his protagonist.
Synopsis in swedish I mer än tio års tid har den egensinnige animatören Johannes Nyholm arbetat med filmer om en liten lerfigur han kallar “Dockpojken”. Flera timmars animation har färdigställts, men väldigt lite har någonsin visats. Här får vi följa med bakom kulisserna och studera arbetet på nära håll. Johannes visar sig ha ett mycket intimt förhållande till sin karaktär.
