The Mega Plush
This darker themed short by Matt Burniston sets the stage for an epic conflict between a series of seriously battle damaged plushie vigilantes in their war against a scourge of sock monkeys taking over. Battle damaged as in heavily patched up, partially cyborg-ed out and a nothing to lose attitude. Have to give it to Burniston, he really took a silly sounding concept and added some palpable tension and a fine coating of grit to it.
Set in the shadows of a gritty underworld, a war is brewing. The Mega Plush, a group of four plush toy vigilantes, are struggling against the uprising of the SOC (Society of Chimps) army. Good vs evil. Bear vs sock monkey. The question is "who has the stuffing to survive?
