The Passions of an Ordinary Mallard is a 6 minute comedy short about the often fabricated stories we tell ourselves in order to get by. Mallard centers on Gustave, a sentient wooden decoy mallard who spends his days musing upon his made up existence living on a pond as a real duck. Gustave’s imagined pond life is filled with suffering and conflict, though the struggles he has created for himself are preferable to the nothingness of being an inanimate object.

The Passions of an Ordinary Mallard  will premiere in 2020.
