Support the preservation & evolution of my favorite Madison venue The Project Lodge on Kickstarter and/or, if you’re in the area, on January 21st.


In keeping with tradition and releasing the works of our friends and FMLY, MJ MJ is proud to present Figure in Isolation, a stop motion short film created by Kaleb Durocher and Michelle Chrzanowski with an original score by our very own Vacation Dad.

Along with being two of our bestest friends and the most awesome people ever, Kaleb and Shelly are constant FMLY supporters and founding members of the wearefriends art collective.  This is what they have to say about their work:

Figure in Isolation is our first animation, a story about masked creatures living alone in an empty world.

We based it off of an original soundscape created for us by the musician Vacation Dad.  Every night after classes we would retreat to a small, dark bedroom to work. This animation reflects our seclusion during the long Wisconsin winter we spent making it. Figure in Isolation premiered earlier this year at the Thirteenth Annual Wisconsin Film Festival in Madison, Wisconsin and was recently screened at the Cinebites Film Festival in Denver, Colorado.

Very proud of my friends.
